Default Going underway (Navy) - big recipe to age?

As the title says, I'll be going underway soon-ish for some time. I'm in the Navy, on the USS MISSOURI. I want to make a beer that can sit in the secondary for a few months.

I just started AG, so I'd like to continue doing that. Recently made a IIPA which was awesome, and a spiced coffee stout, also awesome. They were both normal ABV; I'd prefer if this one was bigger, maybe 10%. I haven't made a barleywine yet, so that's an option, although I'm thinking 6+ months may be better.

Most importantly, this can't be anything which requires constant attention, sugar adds, etc. I'm fairly confident that if I can manage an OG of around 1.100 with a good yeast, it should be OK. It should also be tolerant to temperature swings, as SWMBO will have control over the heater - the house normally stays around 70 F, though.

I'm open to ideas or recipes!

I'd look at maybe a kriek or some other lambic that requires a long fementation/conditioning.

Have a safe cruise shipmate.

How about an Old Ale?

I'd do a wee heavy Scottish Ale there shipmate. BTW, I had the privilege of seeing the Mighty MO do a full broadside after several hours of various salvos on a RIMPAC back in 1990. I served on the Texas CGN-39 for 89 to 93. Thank you for your service.

Always good to see another submariner! I drove SWMBO nuts the last couple of months I was home for the exact same reason. I'm on IA in Kabul for a year, so I made a LOT of beer before I left. All 5g batches, but they're all designed to age in my garage with zero maintenance (though she'll have to top-off the airlocks once in a while). I have three meads, a barleywine, a cherry-bourbon stout, a Chimay Blue clone, Westy 12 clone, and my own Belgian-dark creation all sitting in secondary until next October. We shall see.

First of all, thanks for your service!

I'd make whatever (big) style you enjoy the most.

Agree with the wee heavy. They are very tolerant of fluctuating temps.

BTW - The Mighty MO USS Missouri (Battleship) was decommissioned in 1992 and in 1998 found her final resting place on Battleship Row in Pearl Harbor.

The current USS Missouri is a Virgina-Class attack Submarine, commissioned in July, 2010.

I didn't know that. I remember the MO being decommissioned and being towed from Bremerton. I feel lucky to have seen her fire the big guns up close. BTW BM, thank you for your excellent recipes, there's always one of yours in my pipeline.
