11.0 lb pale malt (79%)
1.0 lb Flaked barley (7%)
0.5 lb Black barley (4%)
0.5 lb Special B malt (4%)
1.0 lb beet sugar (7%)

Est. OG = 1.074
Est Color = 29 SRM
Bitterness = 31 IBU
Agreed. It's got a Barleywine or Quad feel to it. If you want to go more toward BW, I thought BW tended to have more malt than that. My BW had 26 pounds of malt.

Here's what I came up with (so far... not ready to brew it yet and it's still in flux):

12 lb Pale Ale
2 lb Flaked Barley
1 lb Caramel / Crystal 150L
1 lb CaraMunich
1 lb Belgian Candi Sugar - Dark
1 lb Flaked Wheat
4 oz Chocolate


1 oz Centennial 60 min
1 oz Kent Goldings 40 min

WLP530

OG 1.091
SRM 37.64
IBU 38.93

I agree that an OG of around 1.090 is better, since it has around 9% abv. Not sure what I was thinking there, derp.

I'll have to give your other recipe ideas more thought though. I thought my black barley would really work well in this from what I've read about it.

It will and I may end up going with some of it myself in the recipe before I brew it.

I think your crystal malt is probably a good idea. But I think 2 lbs of flaked barley may be a bit high.

I have a rule of no more than 3 malts in any beer, so this one is quite a challenge.

You may have a point. I used 1lb in my BW and it has the right body - even with all the extra malt in it. 2lbs may be too much.

I don't hold to that rule, but you're right, it's challenging to do so when you're talking about a brew like this.
