Default Suggestions for a big beer

It has been a while since I brewed anything of 1.075 or so, I have a spare carboy sitting around that is just begging to age a big beer! I have brewed many large beers in the last 6 months and they are all either aging in bottles or aging in carboys. I am not sure what style to brew next? Does anybody have any suggestions as to another style or recipe for a big beer that I could make?

Here is what I have brewed

Imperial India Pale Ale
Belgian Dark Strong Ale
Belgian Tripel
Imperial Stout
Strong Scotch Ale
Barley Wine

I am on a huge WLP029 kick recently, and I was thinking that I may try to use WLP029 on a baltic porter or imperial pilsener/kolsch....

Try the Baltic Porter. Good idea to try it with Kolsch yeast. Im drinking mine now. Came out really well with California Common yeast.
Otherwise how about a Belgian Golden Strong? My one is currently blowing the socks off everyone that drinks it. 1.085 to 1.003 (honestly!)

I certainly believe your attenuation. I get similar attenuation from the Chimay strain that I bottle harvested. It is crazy!

I think I am going to go with the baltic porter:

here is a start


11# Two Row
4 # munich
1 # white wheat
8 oz crisp amber
8 oz crisp brown
8 oz English C 75
8 oz English C50
4 oz victory
4 oz dehusked carafa III

1.5 oz magnum at 75 %10 AA
1 oz cascade at 45 %4.8 AA
1 oz casdade at 20 %4.8 AA
1 oz cascade at 10 %4.8 AA
1 oz cascade at 5 %4.8 AA

77.54 IBU
1.083 OG
22.5 SRM

WLP029 or Rogue Pacman fermented 65-67 degrees
