I mean c'mon...

The 888RIS event is coming along nicely and before you know it, we'll be looking for something to ring in the magic day of 2009.

This time we brew on (or as close as possible to) 09-09-08 in order to swap, open and enjoy for 09-09-09. This gives a full year for the barleywine to ripen.

I'd suggest we (again) look to the Pastor for a recipe (IE - Water to Barleywine).

Just throwing out an idea, but I'm looking for a reason to brew a barleywine.

Water Barley wine is awesome.. I have a year old batch that is still great. I still think HBT needs to do a group Lambic or Flanders red/brown.. A year gives it a enough time to get ready.

For a guy that proudly gives the world the finger....











That's effing brilliant. Tons of time to plan, brew, age and enjoy. Right on Bier.

BP yer up!

Sounds good! I'm brewing it on 9/11, my birthday. Can't think of a better way to spend my day.

I like the Barleywine idea, sounds very good.
I like Ryan's idea too obviously, but realize its not very likely any kind of 'majority' would decide to brew a sour beer.

Birthday Barleywine...nice...

We'll step up the heat on this idea over the next 3 months and see if we can lock down some participants.

I like barleywine, and you know what? I've never brewed one, which I can hardly believe, myself. This sounds like a good reason to get started.

I'm in.

Regarding the sour.

If I win the lottery, I will drive a barrel across this great earth of ours in my specially designed Jeep and collect everyone's 5 gallons and then redistribute it a year later.

Sounds like a great idea. I've havn't done a barleywine yet either and I should.
The problem is I have a 5gal cooler MLT. So how much DME am I going to need to get to barley wine strength?

I guess I have some time to purchase a larger cooler and change over the bulkhead.
