A friend of mine said that electric potpourri burners work well for melting the wax. I haven't tried it yet but I figure it would be worth a shot.

I made a barleywine about 1 1/2 yr ago. My OG was 1.117. I added yeast during bottling but I got little to no carbonation. Hopefully your results will be better. My next barleywine I make I will consider bottling from a keg. Just my $.02At this strength, as long as you have healthy yeast, and you keep your bottles at room temp until carbonated, and you let them sit long enough, (keep in mind the bottles will seem to loose carbonation when chilled). you should be able to bottle carbonate. I've found it usually takes months, not weeks.
