Default And for my 50th batch of beer.......

I think Im going to do Denny's Bourbon Vanilla Imperial Porter. Ive been looking at this recipe for a while now, and I think that If I brew it in the beginning of May it will be nice and aged by the end of summer.

Does anyone here have an opinion about this recipe? Or better yet, have you done this one yourself? Good thing I have a 10 gallon mash tun, because this one is going to be the biggest beer Ive done yet.

After primary, slit open 2 vanilla beans. Scrape the insides, chop the pods
into quarters, add to secondary fermenter, rack beer onto vanilla. Taste
pperiodically for the correct balance. I left the beer in secondary for 11 da
ys. Rack to bottling bucket and add 10 ml. per pint of Jim Beam Black Bourbon
(or to your taste). Bottle, enjoy!

Wow!!!
At my current rate it is going to take me closer to 4 years to get that many batches in. I've gotten in 4 batches since I started in January. I am planning 3 batches in the next two weeks but those are for a party and to stock up my pipeline. Even with giving a lot away it takes me close to a month to go through a batch.

However I don't think I will wait for batch 50 to do Denny's Imperial Stout. That might be a brew this summer so I can have a good Imp Stout this winter.

That recipe sounds delicious...I might brew this since I ordered some high quality vanilla beans for my next AG batch..plus I love bourbon! Although I think I would use Knob Creek.

I'm going to actually suck it up and put this into 22oz bombers. So I can finally exchange some with some of you. Plus this is going to need a long aging period before its ready, and theres no way I'd let it sit in a keg that long without drinking it first.
