Are you brewing your 08-08-08 RIS? Post your experiences here! Are you brewing it right now? Tell us where you're at in your brew day! Anything and everything 08-08-08 related, at least in terms of the brew itself, can go here! Go wild! (Just keep your shirt on. Those cameras aren't really on.)


Just doughed in my AG batch. All I gotta say is.... Good LORD that's a whole lotta grain! 18 lbs into my tun, it's riding pretty high today! And 5.5 gal strike water, too! Yowzas.

The Hop gods smiled upon me, found some Magnum for my bittering, and got my stash of Goldings already in the freezer. Too bad the Magnum was $3/oz at my lhbs.

EDIT: This is getting interesting. I lost a bunch of the Magnum due to a untimely (and predicted) boilover. Added 1/2 oz hersbrucker to compensate. Also took an extra 5 1/2 gal of runnings (which still look dark) and am flipping those into a second runnings brew. Yay last minute changes.

EDIT EDIT: I'm boiling the 2nd runnings now. Good god this has been high-stress. So many things to break, so little time.


Mash Tun, fairly full if I may say so. But more impressively, dark!


There's some in the bottom of the pitcher and also in the syphon tube.


This is while returning to a boil, immediately after the huge boil-over from my Magnum hop addition.

I had to do mine (steep/ extract) Thanksgiving weekend. It was more than double the biggest grain bill I had previously managed, but five weeks later the hydrometer samples are very very tasty...definitely worth the trouble.

I'll be doing mine in two weeks. I brewed a pale ale yesterday and will be pitching 888 onto the PA cake. Should be an entertaining ferment.

Yes, head room would be a good idea. That or convince the wife that splattered chocolate brown is a nice decorating effect in you living room. I hear all the brewers are doing it this year!

The pics are great, thanks for the effort. As far as stress is concerned, it will be fine. Trust me!

The dogs ate 1.5 pounds of my pale chocolate. Good thing I bought 10 pounds!

Too bad I couldn't get a pic w/o the steam though. Too dark to go sans flash, to steamy to use it correctly. Harumph.

My dining room is a happy beer hall right now - 10 gals in cornies aging on one wall, and 15 gals in primaries on the other wall.
