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?
I would vote some sort of livestock watering trough with some aquarium heaters and pumps.

Or get twelve homeless people to huddle against them for warmth. Pay them in biscuits made from the grain, and steel reserve.

The basement should be right around 60 in the middle of February, which is actually pretty ideal. I can then bring them up into the house where it is warmer (~67) for final attenuation and conditioning.

When i saw this post i fell in love with how simple and cool it was. Tomorrow i am going to make and extract version of the St Andrew with 7 lbs DME instead of the grains. I think that should be ok.

This thread makes me feel closer to the TRUTH embodied in the yeasty alchemy. If today we have no true monastic cells, at least the spirit of devotion lives. The Force is strong with this one.

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

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.
That seems like a lot for 12 beers. I'm assuming that will mostly be for hops? I'm going to try and solo brew all 12 in a weekend soon also (i blame you). I'm going to make a giant 3 day party out of it.

So I made up a box label for the 6-pack holders... What do you think?

Not sure if anyone noticed...but, in the description of St. Simon, last sentence....should it read "fill you with a zeal for life" instead of "feel you with a zeal for life"?

Love the font and the picture. Not sure about the star-type outline though...doesn't quite seem to fit. Though perhaps that's intentional to have a splash of bold shape & color against the tepid background.

I think a more appropriate outline would be a round golden "halo", that is blurred/faded around the edge. This would be more in line with tradition depictions of Jesus. The hops inside would stay. Perhaps the golden halo around the edge could be a light colored beer, with bubble in it?

I'll try to put something together to better show you what's in my head....
