no not really, you just need to make sure you have the right die on the driver.
Then set your hieght and go to town.

Here are the assignments.

I'll have names and addresses out to you all in the next few days.

I recommend shipping no later than the end of April. It is paramount that you communicate with your recipient. Having sh!t happen in life that causes delays is one thing (and perfectly understandable). Leaving a recipient hanging with no communication is a problem.

Congratulations and good luck on your mission. We're all counting on you.

Put mine in the keg a couple days ago. It has some chill-haze. Should I just leave it in the keg for a month (this usually clears up haze) or use some gelatin finnings?

Mine started out at 1.112 then got stuck at 1.060. I pitched it onto a yeast cake of wlp001 and it brought it all the way down to 1.012, over 13% ABV. It still has an alchohol bite but with a nice malt taste. I should keg this weekend then I should be able to bottle in plenty of time to ship.

I can't wait to participate for 10/10/10. After all, we only have 3 more times of doing this before we have to start choosing some pretty arbitrary dates.

I wouldn't be concerned with haze on a barleywine. Your recipient can put the bottles into a fridge somewhere and forget about them for months...that will clear up almost any beer.

True, the small beer (well.. 1.055 or something) from this batch took a couple months to clear up but it is really nice now.
