Oh, that's a fully intended use, and she knows it! I might actually pick it up tonight (I'd love to smoke something nice this weekend, the weather's been SO goregous). I then need to get my hands on some good smoking woods, stuff other than hickory and mesquite.

quick Q:

I knew about the 7-7-7IPA and have done the 8-8-8RIS, but didn't know there was a 6-6-6brew. does someone have a link for that, a search pulled up some "make fun of 666" type threads and Dudes brewday. I didnt know if a recipie was burried in there somewhere.....

perhaps a thread with all the official "number brews" (locked to keep it from getting cluttered up, or only so mods can add the new recipies to it as they come up) would be in one place for easy reference.

just an idea...

I'm not even sure I like Barley Wine, but after reading Brew Pastors recipe I'm intrigued. I think I will brew a Pacific style pale ale this weekend so I have a nice big yeast cake to put Brew Pastor's recipe on and play in the swap this time if you guys don't mind.

Shout "American Homebrewers Association?"

I say stick with the dopplebock and save the barleywine for that big date up ahead. Yopper sent me a bottle of Capital Brewing's Blonde DB and it got my designing mind churning.

But you all decide, what will it be this year my friends? I think we can do better then Water into Barleywine if we go the ABW route.

Count me in for a BW, whenever it's done. Maybe it will light a fire under my a$$ to get the keggle done.

I think Brewpastor is right, an ABW would be an excellent style for 12/12/12 to finish out the series. So what to do for the next 3 years?

If the pastor is already working on a Dopplebock for 9/9/09 then I think that is a good way to go. I won't be joining in that swap as I stated above but the beer sounds good.

My vote is for the following:

9/9/09 - Dopplebock
10/10/10 - Strong Scotch Ale
11/11/11 - Barleywine
12/12/12 - Belgian Trippel

Whichever way, doesn't matter to me. I'm thinking about doing a smoked barleywine regardless (got a cake of US-05, now that I think about it....)

Well fine bird, you do what you want and not brew with the group......

No, I was just throwing out my $0.02 worth. I personaly think if we do a barleywine, might as well do it BIG ie. the '11 or even '12 brew. If we want to go ahead and come up with a recipie for tat and brew it 2-3 years in advance and let it age, I would be up for that fo' sho'.

As mentioned in the other 9-9-9 thread, it might be easier to do a tripel for '12 so we can use the extra sugars to help get up to the 1.120 gravity.

I threw in the Strong scotch ale because, well it sounded good, and sticking it in as the '10 brew with an OG of 1.100 just sounded like the right thing to do. If someone has a better idea for that, please share.

I think I'm leaning toward the Blonde Doppelbock, but I'd do the Barleywine just as well. It will be more of a change from the 8/8/8 recipe and we could really do up the 10/10/10 with the BW. I'm going to play Switzerland on this one and let you guys hash it out.
