No-Sparge Batch

I'm brewing a barleywine tomorrow night and was toying with the idea of doing a no-sparge and then a second mash for a lower gravity beer. I use a 48 qt. cooler and according to my program, if I use...

I've got some Pacman from a Shakespeare stout that I've been stepping up over the past couple weeks that I'm going to use for a barleywine. I hope it's up to the task.

I used spices similar to your option #2, but without the cloves. I'm not sure what sweet orange peel is, I just used a regular orange and grated the peel off. In my next batch I'm not going to use...

Before I got a barley crusher, when I ordered from midwest supplies, the grains I got barely had cracked hulls even when I asked them for a finer than usual crush. I wonder if homebrew stores do a...
