Thread only for those planning to attend the Hoh Down in 4.5 months

#1
4.5 months seems like a long time away... But not when it comes to brewing up tasty grain based beverages.

For this year's Hoh Down, I'm planning to brew up at least a couple 5gal kegs of brew to put on tap. Given that some styles take longer than others to produce properly, I wanted to start planning now.

I'm opening up to suggestions for what most would want on tap. Don't even think about suggesting cloning (insert brand here) light. Not only would that not be worth my time, but you can buy that crap cheaper than I could make it.

For those who want to partake in the fruits of my labor (and the labor of Matt Smith, whom I'm sure will lend his craftiness to this cause as well), any donations to the cause would be much appreciated. Normally I would just do it for free, but since I'm an unemployed full time student, funds is limited. 5gal of your average beer will take about $40 or so to make. So a couple bucks from each person at camp who wants to partake would be hugely appreciated.

What would you guys like to see on tap? I have no limits to what I can make. I've literally done it all.

Yes it was. I'd paypal you $10-20 no sweat for some.
With all the work you put in to making us food? Not a chance I'd accept it.

Dustin - A Scotch ale is not a long shot. And is a great cold weather beer. I like Bitterroot's suggestion too. But doing both would be a lot of heavy beer. I'd like to do one "sessionable," lighter bodied ale or lager, and a stronger, more robust ale like the imperial stout or scotch ale. Just depends on what the people want!

It's a two way street Evan. Costs me to buy as well. Maybe we can trade food for beer. :)

Dude, I'm down to throw some dough your way. I'm a lover or stouts and porters, but I believe in letting an artist be the artist. So I'll sponsor a 5g of whatever your making! Let me know how to get cash to you.

i think you should brew something with at least 13% alcohol and then call it "that wasnt f##king kahlua" or just "chair vomit"

my name is Sean and I came to party. and catch steelhead.

I dont think I can make it unless I have some sort of Mexican brew. A Dos Equis imitation would be heavenly. I will even buy the supplies and help you brew.

I could do a Vienna Lager, which is what those mass produced Mexican swill beers like Dos Equis Amber and Negra Modelo are trying to be.

So far there's overwhelming support for something big, dark, and roasty like an imperial stout. I fully support this idea myself. If that one's decided, I'll begin work on it soon so that it can have a few months to age. Possibly even do some bourbon+oak aging on it if people are in to that kind of thing.
