This Barleywine is only a couple weeks old and it already tastes great! It has that distinct barleywine flavor: super malty and alcoholic, with a bit of sweetness. I crashed it at 1.025 in order to save some sugar to back that big alcohol content (~12%!). It seems well balanced at this point - I'm looking to age it considerably however.

How big of a yeast starter did you use for this one?

It was huge, I believe it was the full yeast patty/trub from a previous batch, which had already been reused once. The more the better, but 1056 does a pretty damn good job - might work out if you just double your original wyeast pack... or use two.

Gonna give this brew a try this weekend, should be interesting as it's more than double my normal grain bill! Only difference is I'm racking onto a Nottingham yeast cake.

Awesome, let me know how it turns out - I've not had too much experience with Nottingham, hope it can handle the high gravity!

Mine turned out great, its beginning to develop that sweet dark cherry barley wine flavor. Getting better with age.

Mine's been in the primary for a week now. The first 36 hours was pretty intense! Had a blowoff tube but it wasn't enough, krausen over flowed, made for a pretty entertaining day and a half.

I plan on drinking this for my niece's birthday, 12-21-12...maybe I should have at least one on 12-20, just in case..haha

I'm confused... By my calculation, 1.2 OG and 1.025 FG makes 23% ABV!

Think he meant

OG of 1.120
-
FG 1.025
0.095

95 divided by 7.36= 12.9
Gives an ABV around 12.9%

My idea of a good barley wine!!!

Wups... haha, that is correct - an og of 1.120,
and yep she's pretty bold

While I'm at it might as well add a couple notes on the brew -
I really enjoy it at an FG of 1.025 but some may like it even drier or cut out some crystal.

If you are using pure oxygen - an extra shot at about 12 - 18 hours into fermentation will really help out those yeasties, and actually reduces final levels of diacetyl and acetaldehyde - you need to wait this long to ensure the yeast have completed at least one cell division.
