A big barleywine could be made for the 08-08-08 brew, and we'll let it rest for 1.5 years.

I agree in principle if not execution. I lost interest last year and this year due to the whole "too many cooks" syndrome, or at least trying to do too much with one beer. However, it does seem to generate a lot of interest and gets everybody engaged which isn't a bad thing. No reason an individual can't create their own 070707.

BTW, I think it should spend 8 weeks in primary, 8 months in secondary with 8 herbs and spices, and 8 months in tertiary. That adds up to 1.5 years.

I'm quickly losing interest in the 7.7.7 because of the "Too Many Cooks". It's like when I went through an experimental phase with chili and I started throwing in a buch of stuff. It ended up tasting terrible. Finally, I had to revert to the basics and make little refinements.

I think the 7.7.7 has gotten out of hand. There's little consideration to how the end product will taste.

I tried the 6.6.6. No offense to Rhoobarb, but he and everyone else knows it's pretty bad. Too many ideas being thrown in. Too many ingredients. Too many flavors.

Yeah, I feel mostly the same about the 07.07.07 beer. I will make one, but it likely will not be what everyone else is making, just in the same spirit.

I will be making another Imperial Hellfire this summer with some tweaks, and using PacMan.
