This sounds awfully similiar to Tyranena Benji's Smoked Chipotle Imperial Porter, which I might add, is an incredible beer. One of my favorite with a bloody mary (or just as a Sat. morning wake up call). Will be brewing something similiar to this (except adding smoked malt and coffee, and removing the vanilla). Thanks!

UPDATE: I brewed this a little over a month ago and bottled it this past weekend. When I racked the beer from primary to secondary, I was pleasantly surprised. Without any of the additions, it was a great stock porter.

Last sunday we bottled and like others have said, it is spicy, but in a good way in my opinion. I expect this heat to die down significantly over time. The cocoa, and vanilla were definately on the forefront with the spice hitting at the end.

I am super excited to try this brew in a couple months when it is carbed up and has started to age a bit. Thanks for the recipe Shinglejohn!!!

I will post a tasting review when I crack the first bottle open in a few weeks.

To those that are fearful of the cayenne, I used amount called for in the reciped and I do not feel that it is by any means overbearing. Remember it will mellow over time. Or leave it out completely and play around with the vanilla additions. I have a feeling this will be a great brew!

One question. When you scrape the vanilla bean; do you discard the pulp and seed, or add all of it to the secondary?

Thanks, Mack

So, does that mean the scraped pulp as well as the husk? Do I drop the entire bean in after I scrape? Also, any need sanitize/ boil spices ( the bean, etc? ). Thank you. Great recipe, planning to brew this w/e. Just ordered ingredients.

scrape and add it all, pulp and husk. I dont do any sanitizing prior to addition, i do add the cocao powder to a small amount of water to help it disperse into the beer.

Default Milk sugar


Hi there. I'm in the process of brewing your converted partial right now (quite excited!), and just realized a stupid: I forgot to buy the milk sugar!
I'm not seeing (not experienced in using it) when to use it, I'm hoping I'm figuring correctly that you use it in the 2ndary, since it's listed below the 2ndary adjuncts.
I read it's not fermentable by yeast, so I'm think it's not in lieu of the priming sugar.
Your knowledge and assistance is greatly appreciated!!!

Oh, also, did you find that the oils from the vanilla bean wasn't an issue?

Thanks!!!
