Yes I have brewed them all and a few of my own creation by swapping out the hop and keeping the 70 IBUs. My suggestion would be to not start with the Sorachi Ace. I had to brew that one twice.

Maybe we can work out some kind of swap. One bottle of each to compare mine against yours. I was planning to brew these again and give away a few 12 packs including all the Hopostles.

The hops alone are a full shopping list for sure.

My plan was line up twelve investors, and brew all 12 over a weekend, then provide each investor with 2 sets of the Twelve Hopostles when they are all labeled and ready (about 5 weeks).

It is an ambitious plan but sounds really fun to me, provided I can get my family to work around it...

The cost to each investor would be $32/case or $8/6er. The total cost to brew all twelve is $472, so I think that is pretty fair considering these are all IPAs

Anyway, I am hoping to line this up for February sometime if all goes well. I would definitely be up for a swap.

Why not the Sorachi? Bad? Really good? I have had the Centenial, the Simcoe, and the Cascade so far and those were rather good. The flavors have been interesting to say the least.

Haha. I am glad to here it. I have never brewed with Sorachi before either, so I am excited to try it.

Well, I am going to attempt to brew all 12 in a single weekend in February. This is by far my most ambitious brewing attempt to date. I will have both the Simple Brewery and the 2P-Twent-E breweries brewing in parallel (both rigs in my sig). So I am thinking I will brew on the following schedule:

Friday night-

Simple → Andrew
2P-Twent-E → Bartholomew
Saturday-
Simple:
→6:00am James the Greater
→11:00am John
→4:00pm Jude
2P-Twent-E
→ 6:00am James the Lesser
→ 11:00am Judas
→4:00pm Matthew
Sunday-
Simple:
→8:00am Philip
→1:00pm Simon Zealot
2P-Twent-E
→ 8:00am Simon Peter
→ 1:00pm Thomas
Whew. That is a lot of brewing, I am going to need a lot of coffee. I will hopefully have a video camera (TyTanium?) and will take some pictures.

I need to line up 12 fermenters, 60 gallons of distilled water, 336 pounds of ice, 126 pounds of grain, 4.5 pounds of hops, and 5 gallons of starter wort.

I hope this ends well.....

That is an epic brewing schedule. Best of luck to you. You should try to ustream it so we can watch.

Yeah... I feel about the same about it. I am going to have to seriously organize everything to avoid screw ups. I am going to have to think about the logistics...

YES. I'm in. So is my camera. It's old though - miniDV Sony Handycam. It'd be ideal to get a camera of commensurate epic-ness to that of this brew day. I'll see what I can do.

The other thing - watching video of 12 identical batches could get repetitive. I've started thinking about how we'll edit this together. We'll have to be just as organized with our sequencing & videography as we are with the actual brewing. I like where this is going.

Oh, and how are you gonna temp-control fermentation of 12 batches simultaneously?
