If you were to add in this graham cracker flavoring, do you think you would add all 4 ounces or would this be overkill?

Dude, I also live in Chicago, and the beer is everywhere. Armanetti's on Lincoln and Addison has a ton of it, as does West Lakeview Liquors on Addison and Levitt. Granted both of those place are in Lakeview, but that's near where I live. I'm sure other Armanetti's have it also.

I personally would just taste as you go, as you would with Vanilla or Hazelnut extract.

ok, i tasted another bottle (we split it into 2 batches, 1 had real vanilla extract added). i tried 2 now with the vanilla and holy **** it's incredibly close to the real thing. it's missing the cake/graham cracker (i think the graham cracker extract would do this) but the malt/hops/sweetness/spices are spot on. it's quite a delicious beer and i will without a doubt be brewing this again, probably before next Halloween.

the 'vanilla' batch is much closer to Pumking than the non-vanilla. when made again, the vanilla will be added to the entire batch at bottling.

How much vanilla did you add, and how much would it translate to for a full 5 gallon batch?

well the total batch was 10 gallons, but i only added vanilla to 5 gallons of it. i soaked 4 ounces of vodka in 3 vanilla beans for 4 weeks, then added the vodka to the bottling bucket.

I can't seem to find it in Wicker Park. The Armanetti's on Western doesn't carry it. The only place I've seen it is Binny's.

I left a message with the head brewer this morning. I'll let everyone know if he get's back to me. I'm not holding my breath, but you never know if they'll share.

My recipe is very similar to the ones posted here however I threw in a pack of crushed graham crackers in the last 5 min of the boil. Just racked to secondary and going to add a dash of vanilla extract. Will let y'all know how it turns out! Looking at 10% ABV as well. Yowza!

just wanted to update here. so far every person i've given it to has absolutely loved it, even the BMC drinkers. they've all said it's more of Pumpkin Pie Ale than the Pumpkin Ales they've tried elsewhere. attached is a photo. this beer kicks ass!!

so you never list what you spice additions were. other than the vanilla what did you put in? what quantities and when? did you blend each of the two batches or bottle separately?
