Notes

https://www.homebrewersassociation.org/homebrew-recipe/sierra-nevada-bigfoot-barleywine/

Recipe calls for:
1.0 lb (0.45 kg) English Crystal 75L malt
1.0 lb (0.45 kg) English Crystal 105L malt

I am using SImpsons Dark Crystal (70-80) and Simpsons DRC double roasted crystal (105-120) instead of 105L

Ferment at 68° F (20° C) until gravity drops to 1.020 (5° P), rack into secondary fermenter and dry hop for two weeks. Bottle, using dry malt extract to prime. Allow to age about 6 months to reach maturity.

Gravity was low. Had to boost with DME/corn sugar and even a little honey, but got it to 1.103. Dry hopped after only a week and bottled after 2 more weeks. FG on target at 1.020.

Now the wait...
