Bad Santa from BYO
 
My next batch was going to be "Bad Santa" that was in the winter warmer section of this months BYO magazine. Unfortunately over my thanksgiving holiday I lost the magazine at my in-laws house and it may never return. I was wondering if any BYO subscribers could help me out. I'm not sure about copyright stuff, I remember how much maple syrup and black patent was in it as well as the hop schedule, I just don't remember a lot of the rest. If someone could type up the rest of the grain bill(all-grain) that would be awesome.

Did you end up brewing this? I'm just getting ready to add the vanilla bean and cinnamon in the secondary. I'm wondering how it turned out.

I decided to push it back a month or two, but I have all the ingredients and am looking forward to it. Since I pushed it back, you let me know how it turns out.

I just kegged mine 3 days ago. The vanilla came through really strong. I'm hoping getting the carbonation to the right level and a little time will drop the intensity a little. I didn't add the cherrys so I don't know if that would help offset the vanilla. I'll try to update after the carbonation is right.

did you just add one bean? I may tweak the recipe a bit. I am definitely keeping the vanilla but I will probably drop the cinnamon. I don't mind if vanilla dominates the aroma, just not the taste.

Just 1 bean. Both flavor and aroma are very pronounced.

Resurrecting an old thread, but curious how this turned out, did the vanilla ease off with the carbonation, did anybody add the cherries??
