Default Vanilla Cake Icing Aroma

How could you achieve a vanilla cake icing aroma? I'd like to try to have that aroma with a porter that I am making. Its different then just the aroma of vanilla beans, but I think they would have to be a part of what is added. I've never made icing for a cake, but it looks like its just butter, vanilla, white sugar and milk(optional).

You could try experimenting with combining vanilla, butter extract, sugar and lactose until you arrived at the aroma that you are looking for.

I would say look for an ale yeast that leaves around some diacetyl to get the buttery taste (maybe an english ale yeast). Or, you could do what the British brewers do with cask ale and kill the fermentation when it's about 2 points away from terminal gravity, and see if you get a little diacetyl left that way. Butter extract just sounds kind of wrong to me, but maybe it would be ok.

Add vanilla beans to the end of the boil the yeast perhaps Belgian Ardennes 3522 or 1214
something that that gives esters

Do you think I should use that as the sole yeast for the porter, or should I mix it with the american ale yeast that I planned on using?

How about cream soda extract? That might give you some buttery character.

You are almost describing spf 8 from Port Brewing . It's been a while since I've had it but you
may want to look up a clone for this. Not a Porter but has some of the qualities you are looking for.
