Sounds like a good idea. Especially since it's the day before my birthday!

I have a book from '94 that uses the same date. Brew a beer but don't expect to die while drinking it

I was thinking of something really big. 1.111? Would like to do a 1.221, get it December 21st! 3 gallon starter, ferment from July to September, bottle condition to about December 10, cool til Dec 19. Start drinking until I don't care whether the world ends or not.

Maybe I am already too late?

Unrelated to the beer question, but I suspect that this common error has to do with the lack of the year Zero in our current calendar. The Current "cycle" of the Mayan long count calendar crosses over from BC to AD in ours, and normally when counting on a number line one would count the number zero as an increment.

As our calendar system went directly from the year 1 BC to the year 1 AD, thus skipping a year, it would be easy to forget to account for this difference of one year in the predicted end of the Mayan Long Count Calendar.


Of course, this is total speculation.....and the whole end of the world this is BS anyway

You'd think someone studying ancient calendars would have that knowledge. And it's a year and 3 days...I would check my math before declaring the end of the world

Sorry to derail this. I do hope I'm drinking a beer when my time comes though.

Such an amazing beer and totally fitting! I celebrated Harold Camping's supposed doom's day by enjoying it for the first time.
