The poll is funny. What homebrewer would choose to brew later rather than sooner?

Yeah, I'm the only one that chose the latter date, but I'm obviously out-voted here. Still, it's not like you can't brew anything else in the mean time.

That is funny. Or is it a sign? Are the brewing gods trying to tell us something?

so far it looks like drink day...so if it works out that way, what does this mean for brewing? should we just brew any day we want? for instance, if i wait a month after everyone else has brewed, mine won't age as long, but we open the same time?

or is it important that we all brew the same day/weekend?

does it matter?

Let me be the first to chime in and say that your RIS was/is outstanding!

I voted to brew early for an 08.08.08 release date.

I voted drink 8/8/8/!
As long as we brew fairly close to a set date it shouldn't make much difference. And if we discuss how it tastes @ 8 months and someone's is only 6 months then they'll know what to expect in 2 months. Or any variation of that.
