Default Barleywine for the End of the World

Anybody planning a barleywine or the like to brew soon and drink on December 20th as the world ends? I have a mead conditioning right now, but I would love to try my hand at a barleywine.

Any ideas?

At current, I am only able to put together extract recipes (other than little tiny grain bills).

Anybody out there have a superb, tested extract recipe for barleywine?

Hey I have a tread running here that is very much like this one: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f14/anyo...2012-a-290463/ There may be a tasty bit of something there that sparks an idea or 2.

As for an extract BW. While not impossible it is going to expensive and may end up with a much higher FG than anticipated as a fore warning.

Thanks a bunch, Zamial!

Groovy signature, by the by. I learned just how much of a professional I used to be once I moved to Chicago for college. I have slowed down a bit lately. Probably for the better, ha.

I have decided on a SMaSH English Barleywine with Maris Otter and East Kent Goldings (I know I stated I can only do extract, but I am buying a 10 gallon Igloo cooler this week to do AG). Also, I am going to try and brew a small beer, perhaps an ESB with EKG and Fuggles, from the second runnings. Maybe I'll keep that one a SMaSh, too. Would be interesting to show friends how the same four ingredients can be made into two completely different beers...

Anyway, this is what I am thinking for two five gallon batches of SMaSH barleywine and ESB:

15 pounds of Maris Otter gives me an OG of 1.075. From the tables here: BT - Parti-Gyle Brewing [table] I can extrapolate a "big" beer of 1.100 and a "small" beer of 1.050, both of which are right in the wheel houses for barleywine and ESB, respectively.

So, starting with a 1.100 barleywine, I shall follow this hop schedule:

2 oz EKG at 60 mins
1 oz EKG at 45 mins
1 oz EKG at 30 mins
1 oz EKG at 5 mins

Plan to use Safale 04 with a 2 liter starter.

For the ESB, starting with 1.050 or wort,

2 oz EKG at 60 mins
1 oz EKG at 5 mins

This puts both beers right on style. I am looking for anybody with partigyle experience to critique this approach. I want to brew these beers by the middle of February, so the barleywine has a good long time to age on some bourbon soaked oak chips.

Oh, and using Safale 04 for the ESB, as well.

5 gallons of English Barleywine and 11 gallons of ESB....partygyle of course!! My SMaSh barleywine was also MO and EKG with a SG of 1.095 I went with 3 oz for 60, 2 oz for 30, and 2 oz at flameout. My ESB was based on Common Room ESB in the recipe section. I used WL 007 for the Barleywine and S-04 for the ESB. Good luck
