I've done a lot on MO recipies in the past and I feel like I have a good handle on that flavor (that I love). I thought I'd see what Munich does in a large beer. I also want to see about Phoenix hops as my HB place has them.
I have a cake of wlp007 so I'm going for an out of style, perhaps, English Barleywine over a Belgian strong.

Anyone use Phoenix before? I thought the malty sweet Munich with spicy Phoenix might turn out nice in a barleywine. I thought I'd try to dry out the Munich effect with a low mash temp and a little sugar.
