Well looks good to me, but my experience with WLP002 is that it' not very attenuative. Maybe that's your goal but mashing up at 158 and using that yeast, it could end high. I had a 1.055 beer mashed a 157 stop at 1.020 with that yeast, which was quite higher than I wanted. Anyway just a thought.

It'll be sweet...

I'd ditch the caramel malts and move the saccharification rest a few degrees lower.

If you want it darker, just boil a while longer before you add hops. It will darken up plenty on its own.

My last barleywine is darker than many brown ales and the only malt I used was two-row pale.

So I guess I could drop the temp of the sach rest to the low side, I will drop some of the crystal but I got to have a little something in there.

I wounder about some Irish Ale Yeast I have a batch that is ready to bottle, I could make this tomorrow and dump it on that cake.

IMO the grist is OK, just drop the mash temp to 148-150 and you will be OK...

I'd switch to WLP007 for sure...
