Wee Heavy – very simple recipe

IBU: 35.4
SRM: 17.4
OG: 1.087
FG: 1.025 (ish)
ABV: 8+%

Grains:
17 lbs. Golden Promise
5.5 ounce Roasted Barley

Hops:
2.5 oz East Kent Goldings (60 min)

Yeast:
Scottish Ale (Wyeast Labs #1728)

Mash Temp: 154F
Boil: 120 min
Ferm Temp: 65F

Take two gallons of first runnings and boil down to one quart.
Add back to kettle for two-hour boil.
This provides a caramelly sweetness and deep color of this beer.

Also, the club mentioned their first barrel project which began about a year ago:

Wild Belgian Blonde Ale for Honey Barrel

For this one they did a mixture of grains. Some members used undermodified Pilsner and others Rahr Premium Pilsner. They also mixed up White Wheat, Red Wheat, Dark Wheat. This was all intentional in order to better replicate how beer may have been produced 100+ years ago where they didn’t have as scientific malting processes, as well as replicate how farmers/brewers may have taken Wheat/Barley from their farm and maybe neighboring farms and mix and matched it in order to come out with a fantastic brew!
