Yes, I am also of the opinion that a Dalton type minimum is more likely, and not just because it is the maternal family name.
The 200 year pattern looks like it's repeating rather than the 400 year one that is less detailed due to it being based on reconstructions as opposed to actual observations.

"Rather similar timing and cadence in all three cases (so far with the recent one). Also similar -- Tamboro's eruption at weak peak April 1815 and Krakatoa in 1883. Although different peaks in the analogy, seems like quite a coincidence and one wonders what might erupt in 2025 as we have dodged this bullet of a major dust veil producer thus far in the recent minimum"

The next eruption I think will occur around then or possibly before will be Katla. It is over due anyhow.
Not sure if it will be big enough to effect on a global scale but certainly our neck of the woods.

Looking at Dr. Ned Nikolov twitter I see:

He says:
The predicted solar grand minimum around 2050 is not likely to have a TSI reduction of 8 W m-2, but 1.5-2 W m-2 is possible.
A key point to remember is that TSI changes only slightly affect Global Temp., because the temp. sensitivity to TSI is just 0.053 K/(W m-2).

The maximum of this next cycle – measured in terms of sunspot number, a standard measure of solar activity level – could be 30 to 50% lower than the most recent one.
The new research was led by Irina Kitiashvili, a researcher with the Bay Area Environmental Research Institute at NASA’s Ames Research Center, in California’s Silicon Valley

(Though they got the last cycle prediction spectacularly wrong)
There's an interesting discussion in the comments section..

Leif Svalgaard predicted that cycle 25 would be higher than 24, but lower than cycle 20.

And I've already posted Zharakovas prediction..

Confirmation bias ahead but has there been an upswing in volcanic eruptions this past few months? Or just been reported on more?

Just a little reminder that we are still in the transition phase between cycles.

TWO SOLAR CYCLES ACTIVE AT ONCE: Today, there are two active regions on the surface of the sun, places where strong magnetic fields are bubbling up from below. The magnetic polarity of the regions reveals something interesting: Two solar cycles are active at once. One region belongs to old Solar Cycle 24, the other to new Solar Cycle 25. This is normal. Solar cycles always overlap at their boundaries. It's just the latest sign that change is occurring on the sun. Aurora alerts: SMS Text.
