Default Summer is here so it's....

Russian imperial stout time...In 6 months or so it's time to drink some RIS. What is everyone's wants/needs to make a RIS.

I have a 5g carboy for all summer aging and want to make a RIS and the recipes are so varied. What is the perfect amount of roasted barley, crystal, or other specialty grains in your perfect RIS?

I'm going to try a sweetwater happy ending RIS clone. To give you some numbers I'm using:
84% 2-rOW
8% Crystal 80
3% Chocolate
3% Roasted Barley
2% Black Malt
Total grain bill is around 20 lb.

Your recipe uses only around .6lbs of roasted barley. That seems kinda normal, some seem to use around 1.5lbs which seems high.

I don't like the RIS that seem to be to soy sauce like. Any more input?

Haven't brewed a RIS yet but I like me some Old Rasputin, will probably start with the BYO clone:
