I think if I tell the wife now that I plan to brew on 8-8-8, she will be okay with it, until 8-7-8. What else can you say to something this cool. I am in.

8-8 is a Friday, cool...

I'm up for this on one condition: that it's not a group collaboration. Otherwise we'll end up with an IPA.

EDIT: Or we could be philanthropic about this and say that you get to select an ingredient for every $50 you donate to a selected charity.

I really like the idea of brewing this on the 8th. I don't care how the recipe is generated, and will be glad to write one up or contribute. For now we should decide if we want this to be an brew for 8-8-8 or a brew on 8-8-8.

Can one of the Mods add a poll to this to see if people want to brew for or on 8-8-8?

If we brew on the 8th I would suggest we do a group recipe/brew for Berrific's wedding. Maybe we each brew a batch and send him a sixer for the big day. I will run a thread on that.

I like the idea of brewing on a day that I know fellow brewers across the nation & world are also brewing the same recipe... woah, that sounds really fruity...

I'm in. I didn't do 666, or 777.

Maybe I can get a few of the local guys together for this one!

I guess there's going to be a poll, but I'd like to see it be a RIS Brewpastor comes up with. And waiting 10 months to brew it seems long, I'd rather see it brewed soon and saved till 8/8/8 to drink(nicely aged by then).
If the recipe is posted pre-8/8/8 I'm going to have a tough time not brewing it. Lastly, 1.080 is on the lower end for an RIS - I'm not just looking for big ABV - but what about 1.088 or 1.108? I guess that coould be a personal decision, just up the base malt a bit.
Whatever is decided, this is going to be fun.

For the impatient among us (myself included), we could brew it 8 months and 8 days prior to opening it, which would put the brew day over the New Year holiday.

As for the theme of eights - it's getting out of hand to do 8 different grains, 8 hops varieties, 8 hops additions, etc, etc, etc.

An OG of 1.088 or 1.108 would be cool. Themes of 8 work with grain weights - 8 lbs of base grain, 8 lbs of another base grain, followed by 8 oz additions of specialty grains. An 80 minute boil is probably going to be the minimum on a beer this big. Then, for our metric folk, 88 grams of hops is roughly 3 oz. Guess I'm babbling at this point.

This'll be fun no matter how it shakes out.
