I'd go for a barleywine with
3.5 Maris otter
2# Munich
1# c60
In a one gallon batch should get you around 14%+ ABV

A big beer is already going to have plenty of residual sugar, that much crystal would be cloying. I wouldn't go over 8oz, and preferably closer to 4-6oz, if any. Not sure on OP's efficiency so assuming around 75%, I'd opt for something closer to this
3.5# MO
0.75# Munich
0.25# C60
should put you around 1.126 for OG, I wouldn't go any higher than that if you want to be sure it'll finish. make sure to mash low and keep fermentation temps down (no higher than 68F internal temp).

if you have a FoodSaver, you could seal them up and store in the freezer (if it's worth it to you).

What hops should I grow? Hop grower's comparison table. Looking for cheap honey?

Drinking: citra saison
Fermenting: a hop-bursted APA w/ Conan, a citra farmhouse with ECY08 & brett blend.
Aging: a bunch of belgian and soured stuff.
Up next: either an imperial stout or something to use up my homegrown hops... TBD.

I use a swamp cooler. I can get the water in the cooler down to 65F. How similar is the internal temp of a glass fermenter and the temp of the surrounding water?

These are pre milled grains from august/sept. Can i store them any longer? So far i have stored them in thight, closed plastic bags in an unused plastic fermenter bucket @ 70F.
