I propose a Russian Imperial Stout.

What do you say?

Are you with me or are you brewing piss for the neighbor's mother?

Recipe attempt number 1:

Some of the info is off. For example, the evaporation rate is more like 12% and the length of boil is 120 minutes, not 60. But we can fix all that later. This is a 20 gallon batch so use your math, or we can deal with that later as well.

Your Dark Night of the Soul is the best stout(RIS or otherwise) I've brewed. I'd definitely brew it and would love to see what you come up with.
OFFTOPIC: Did you brew the flanders yet?

I'm in. I'll be brewing again by then, and hopefully I'll be All-Grain by then. At the very least I'll be PM-ing.

I'm in. I am getting married that day so I would love to have it in bottles prior and then crack open a bottle that day and repeat every year after...

I have been looking for something that would store well. It is like you read my mind and made it up for me.
