What type of barley wine? Even if you knew if the American or English style suits you better, that's a start. Do you have any favorite commercial examples?

Off the top of my head (my computer is down for the while and my recipes with it)

Try this:

18# Marris Otter
2# Brown Malt
(add some sugar if you want it dry or more ABV)
Mash at 149-151 depending on how dry you want it also.
90 min boil

1oz of Cent at 60
1oz of Cent at 10
1oz of Cent at dry hop

Sorry I dont have number since I can't get to my beersmith, but that should work for you. I am planning on doing something similar to this but with a higher OG and using EKG for the hops. If you have the software to check it, make it about 1.100 OG with about 60 IBU's from your first charge and the others should be good.

Midwest Supplies has a SN Bigfoot Barley wine clone, more of an American Barley wine though. I brewed this one in November, transferred it to secondary ontop of oak cubes and let it sit for 7 months before bottlling it last week. http://www.midwestsupplies.com/catal...cat=&q=bigfoot

Not to derail your thread stalewater but it looks consistent with recipes...a crap ton of base a few lbs of flavor, long boil and a ton of hops!
