Anyone looked at the recipes yet? I'm digging the Mike Riddle recipe and it looks awesome. 8.5% 100 SRM 100 IBU 6L starter 20+ lbs for a 5 gallon batch. I'm looking forward to brewing this but I've got some work to do. Should be really fun to brew.

The HBT community did a RIS for 8/8/8, which was a fabulous beer. Here's the thread if you are interested.

Whoops, edited title. Guess I'm slipping.

EDIT: Do I have the ability to change the title of the thread or just the title of my first post?

I dont think you can edit the title of a thread. A mod might be able to help but it's no big deal...

I'm actually looking at the magazine right now and thinking I like the "Czar's Revenge" better. Not a fan of the high IBUs of the others. I think I might do the Czar's but use the Irish Ale yeast I have from doing an Irish Red then a Stout I just did and see how it turns out.

They all say to wait 6 months - 2 years (!) before drinking but I dont think I can do that...

Well I plan to bottle this, first time in almost a year. I figure I can leave it in the bottle for at least 6 months or more. In that amount of time the bitterness should mellow into awesomeness. I'm thinking about splitting the batch in secondary and oaking half of it. In the mean time I'm making sure to crank out enough beer to take my mind off of it.

I just started the starter for my porter for the weekend, the yeast cake I plan to pitch this on. I'm planning for the first weekend in December for the imperial brew. When do you plan to brew?

I wonder how you'd adjust your water for 100SRM?

I haven't picked up any 5.2 yet but since Ed is now open for bizness!!! I can pick some up. I'm going to check my mash ph this weekend but I haven't advance beyond ph and reducing chlorine and chloramine. I don't have a water report for the area yet.

Good point...maybe I should bottle it and try to forget it for a while. Maybe try and wait til next winter?

I plan to brew the RIS Thanksgiving weekend.
