Default My barleywine recipe - thoughts?

Recipe below; couple questions (though feel free to chime in on anything else):

1) Anyone ever use Centennial and Willamette together, or have thoughts on how they might work together? I wanted something other than the citrus-on-citrus of the usual "C's".

2) If I'm aiming for a nice alcohol-malt-hops balance, is the mash @ 154 OK? I was thinking I didn't want to go much lower, to preserve some of the mouthfeel and maltiness; plus I'll get a bunch of fermentables from the honey. But maybe I should go higher?

Thanks in advance...

I'd mash lower anyways. With that much malt there is going to be plenty of mouthfeel. Especiially since you have the carapils in there. I'd mash at 150. The high gravity yeast probably isn't necessary, especially if you are pitching on a yeast cake.

Chinook & Bullion would also make fine kettle hops for a beer of this magnitude.
