I have the same problem but my 11.7% barleywine has been in the bottle for 5 months. I was also considering adding yeast to the bottles. Does anyone know of a downside to this? Any tips for success?

Do you leave the beer at these high temps for the duration of the primary? For instance if I ramped my temps from 68 to 85 over the first week do I keep it at 85 for the next 2 to 3 weeks?
