I like the idea of fruit barleywines, my next one will DEFINITELY be this one or similar barleywine with fruit. I like barleywines, and my idea is to make a bunch every few batches for a while so I will have enough to be able to drink every so often but still have plenty that will age. So later I will have bottles that are 1year-old, 1.25years-old, 2years-old, 2.5, etc. Its like forcing myself to plan ahead, if that makes sense.
