Default 06.06.06 We should start planning now....

I regard this forum as great fun--I spend a ton of time here and not only enjoy the company but find a ton of knowledge from you guys. That said--I think we should all put our heads together and come up with a recipe for an epic beer that we can all brew and put the official name of "Homebrewtalk" on the label.

We have very knowledgeable folks here, as well as artists, and great personalities--this beer should reflect all of that. I suggest this thread be used as a brainstorm for a recipe idea, then we'll break it off and let anyone interested help design a label and we will all vote on it. Same with a unique name--we'll take suggestions and vote.

Anyway--let the games begin. First let's come up with a recipe.

Personally--I'd like this recipe completed soon--so we have enough time to experiment with brews, and then once we come up with a winner, maybe we can enter it into the NHBC judging in May/June. No one person would take credit for it, it would be from "homebrewtalk", and if the beer does well, maybe put this forum on the map even more.

Anyone interested?

My suggestions on what this beer should be like:

I think it needs to be big. An imperial. 06.06.06 only comes once, so it has to be memorable. I think we need to come up with a unique recipe that hasn't been done. Without getting too over the top--but everyone will have input.

Let's get some suggestions!!!

Me first--I'm thinking an imperial red, nicely hopped and adjuncted heavily with rye maybe? Maybe use a yeast blend from White labs with some unique characteristics?

I'd vote for Stiffy: "The bastard child of a Wee Heavy and a Left Coast IPA"

great idea dude. this yeast from white labsmight work:
American Ale Yeast Blend
(WLP060)


Our most popular strain is WLP001-California Ale yeast. This blend celebrates the strengths of California - clean, neutral fermentation, versatile usage and adds two other strains that belong in the same" clean/neutral" flavor category. The additional strains create complexity to the finished beer, and will taste more lager like than just WLP001. Hops flavors and bitterness are accentuated, but to the extreme of WLP001. Slight sulfur will be produced during fermentation.
Attenuation: 72-80; Flocculation: medium; Optimum Ferm. Temp: 68-73

or the 10th Ann. Ale yeast from WL.

i like the idea of the imperial American red too......

My smoked porter was done with that 10th anniversary yeast...great yeast, IMHO. White Labs won't tell me what strains it is though.

Once we get some more brainstorming going--maybe we can narrow down a beer and then get a recipe going. I'm half tempted in my excitement to put one together now and post something....

I think it definatly needs some pilsenery/sulphurous edge. 666 after all, brimstone and all that. Actually, I like the idea of something red and bitter, we can keep the evilness to naming and labels.

How about 'The Apoc-Ale-Ypse'?
