Default Just found out I'm going to be a DAD!!!!!

Just found out this weekend that im going to be a 1st time Dad in about 9 months! Im glad everything worked as planned...we wanted to get pregnant so off birth control for 2 weeks and bam...done and done...

I just brewed up a batch of my now named Daddys Dunkelweizen this weekend to celebrate!

The sad thing is that my wife loves beer and she is going to miss out on all the yummy brews that im making...

With that said I need some help from you guys *which is why I posted in this forum as opposed to the general chit chat* I want to put a recipe together for something that would benefit from sitting and fermenting for 9 or more months that my wife would enjoy...kind of like a celebration kind of deal...

Does anyone have any recipes or ideas for something tastey that has a LONG fermentation period?

Well, you won't find a beer with a long fermentation period. A lot of beer must be aged for a good while before consumed. I just brewed a ~9% Russian Imperial Stout that will be aged in a keg once fermentation is finished until the Winter Solstice. A lot of members here took place in a Barleywine swap. They brewed the beer on 9-9-08 and it will be consumed on 9-9-09. A tripel would also hold up to longer aging.

In general, higher alcohol beers take to aging better. Most actually need a long aging period to mellow out.

yes longer aging!! that is what I meant to say I apologize for the mix-up...A belgian tripel would be nice we live about an hour or so from Belgium right now so that would be sweet!..

Any ideas on a good recipe for one?

Congrats. If you haven't reverted back to extract brewing yet, expect to soon. Good luck getting 4-6 hours alone to brew. And you can forget that quadruple decoction 6 month aged Oktoberfests you've been planning.

The Jamil Show is always a good place to start when brewing a new style.

Congratulations to a fellow future dad! My wife just got a due date, Feb 7th. Its wild, taking a while to sink in. Good luck to you and your wife.

I also will be a father in about 9 months...well 8 by now.

I'm looking for a name for a beer celebrating the birth. I'd like it to include the baby's name.

Audrey Jo for a girl, Jack Claytor for a boy.

I have already decided on Audrey's Ale(Pale Ale, India Pale Ale...some variation).

I need one for Jack.

Wow that's quick for names. We haven't talked seriously about them yet. They said 2 more months before we find out what we're having. I may work on a RIS or some sort of barley wine since it will have plenty of time to age. Something to celebrate with in Feb.

Congratulations. I've been putting off making a porter for a while lately. My wife really enjoys them so I made one for her. Then she found out she was pregnant before it was ready and wasn't able to fully enjoy it.

I'm trying to delay another batch of it, since its getting to be time to make some more porter
