Default bottling barley wine

I brewed a barleywine on 4/21... is it too soon to bottle? I'm aiming to have some ready by 7/16... unless it won't be ready, in which case i'll FORCE myself to be patient....thx!

Not too soon to bottle assuming fermentation is done. Whether it will be carbed to your satisfaction by 7/16 is another question entirely. Personally I wouldn't drink a barley wine that soon after bottling because it will probably be a little hot still. YMMV

depends what you consider ready. will it be carbonated and drinkable? probably. will it be better if you give it more time? absolutely. its up to you whether you want to give it the time in the bottle or bulk tho
