Default 12-21-12 Barleywine(aka:"End of the World Ale" or "Myan Special") Who is brewing one?

I'm planning on brewing a Barleywine this summer to be consumed at the end of the world (December 21, 2012) but I'm still sorting through recipes and trying to formulate one! This'll also sort of be my 2 year anniversary of brewing beer!

So who is brewing a beer for 12-21-12, and what are you brewing (if you don't mind sharing your recipe)?

I wanted to make a Grand Cru, but I dont think there's enough time left for aging...

Oh, I think there's plenty of time, even if it isn't ready by that date.....if you get my drift.

I might brew one before I ship out for the Marines. It might work since I would be gone and not brewing, I could just let it sit and age for a while.

I need to think and ponder this...

I did an imperial stout with dried guajillo and ancho chiles, cocoa powder, vanilla bean, and cinnamon... seems like that would fit the day well.

The thought hadn't occurred to me but now that you bring it up, it sounds like a wonderful idea. I've never made a barley wine before... time for some research!

I really, really like this idea. Going with the cultural theme, you could incorporate chocolate, coffee, and South American spices into the final mix. Seems perfect for a massively imperial stout.

(One clarification: I think it is the Aztec calendar that has everyone predicting the end of the world, not Mayan.)

No. It's the Mayan calendar. And I Googled "Mayan calendar" a while back, and came across a scholar who's studied the Maya AND their calendar his whole career, and what he says makes very interesting reading. If you don't have the time, I can summarize: Don't worry about it.

Mea culpa.

Not really worried about it at all. I do think it's a fun idea and theme for a beer, though.
