Is it ok, if the Lhbs doesn't have the right hops and we have to sub? My store is really running short on a lot of popular hops.

Of course. Especially in todays' environment. I had to sub in the hops for the RIS.

The recipe will be a default, but as long as folks adhere to the 999 theme, flexibility is part of the game.

After all, the brewer is going to end up with 1 1/2 cases of barleywine so they ought to be given some leeway.

I am getting pretty excited about this, it looks like there is going to be a good turnout on this one! Even though I brewed the 888, Iwish I had gotten involved in that swap.

I am in! Can't wait to see that recipie

I am not yet a supporter but hope to be soon (for some reason brewing is one thing to SWMBO, but the nerdiness of paying for online forums she is not quite over, I give her another couples weeks to come around). Can I still sign up for this trade in the future? please...

I would vote for a smoked BW, sounds awesome.

Sure. We probably won't get around to finalizing the list until later in September.

I'm not going to lock down the list until people have brewed.

Now...start checking the sofa for spare change and ante up...

i'm down. i couldn't help but open a few of the RIS 08/08/08 already. They're amazing. 4 more months and i'll really break into them

I'm always willing to try one of BrewPastor's recipes.

do a 3 gallon batch or a double mash for 5 gallons - mash 20 - 24 lbs of grain in a 5 gal cooler by using the first runnings of a 10 - 12 lb mash as liquor for a second 10 - 12 lb mash. terribly inefficient but gets ya there without extract.

A comment about the swap. In addition to the BW we will be sending. I will be sending some local micros. This will be my first swap so I dont know if the local thing is common practice but it would be cool to give and receive local stuff.
Just a thought.

Im getting excited about this already!
