BarrelO'Rebel II.II- Return of the Rebel

All,
We've been sampling the barrel brew during the last two meets and the consensus is that it's ready to come out (and that it's pretty damn tasty as well).  But we're not going to take it out until we have another brew ready to take it's place.  So I'm kicking off this thread to get names in for the next brew and suggestions for recipes as well.  In the long term as I have said before, I'm in favour of turning the barrel sour (or funky) before it does it to us first, but I think we can get another clean batch from this barrel and judging from the last batch, some oak flavours as well.  For clean beers to survive I think they need to be both high ABV and high IBUs, so I'm suggesting an imperial stout or porter.  Not going to throw in a receipe yet as I think we should bounce it around first.  So here we go again! - and by the way, kudos to LordEoin for a great receipe for the last batch, would never have come up with that and am really impressed with how well it came out .

Like I said at the meet up I reckon Harvey's RIS is the perfect compromise, what with it being an imperial stout and a brett beer.

I've had a look around for a recipe for Harvey's and can't find one, basically because it's actually re-brew of Courage RIS.  But, on the upside, I got the Durden Park book recently. There's a recipe for 1914 Courage RIS in there. Any one interested?

Promise I will try make it to a meet! Again, if there's a regular Rebel brewer being left out, feel free to axe me but I'm willing to brew for the next fill too

Look forward to seeing you at a meet BrewDorg! Would love to have you contribute to the barrel again especially given the quality of your last batch, so we're counting you in!
Mr. Hippy what's the Courage RIS recipe? All curious now.

Mr. Hoppy, damn autocorrect.

Another few decent vintage RIS recipes in Ron Pattinson's book 'Homebrewer's guide to vintage beer'. I can share if needed.

I'd like to do something like Youngs double chocolate Stout or else founders KBS. I've never down a Brett before so I'm a bit hesitant.

Anyone else interested? I know most people are planning their competition entries. But I say we need at least 4/5 more.

Go on sure. You only live once.

Dr Horrible

The Brewtoad recipe looks interesting but a bit complicated for a big group brew - I'd say the JimsBeerkit one might be closer to the old Courage RIS - although I'll defer to the experts on that.
