Question in grep

I have a requirement where I need to search for 26 consecutive 000000.000 in a file. I tried using grep but it is not working.

The string I need to search is
000000.000000000.000000000.000000000.000000000.000000000.000000000.000000000.000000000.000000000.000 000000.000000000.000000000.000000000.000000000.000000000.000000000.000000000.000000000.000000000.000 000000.000000000.000000000.000000000.000000000.000000000.000
I gave \ before the . to ignore the wildcard character. Stil it is not giving the desired output.

Please help.

Code:
egrep '(000000\.000){26}' infile
