I'd ditch the DME in the barleywine and use table sugar. I'd shoot for 80%+ attenuation to keep it from being cloying. I've never heard of a Belgian beer with Cascade or Centennial, but I'm sure it'll taste fine, though not particularly "Belgian"

The RIS looks fine, but it'll be thick.

Too thick for the RIS you think? Any suggestions?

Not necessarily TOO thick, but it'll be thick. From the BJCP style guide: Full to very full-bodied and chewy. Sounds about right.

Light body? not with that much cara-pils, drop it as you have plenty of body from the DME.
BTW what yeast? 2L starter I hope

I'm just doing a light body mash ~ 150F, I know that it won't be a light bodied beer. Carapils for head retention and creaminess. Removing the DME and replacing with table sugar.

Using Wyeast 3787. Definitely using a starter!
