Default AG- Vanilla Bean Porter

borrowed a recipe from the local Dry Dock Brewery for this one.

Grain bill too long too list (lots of different specialties : maris otter, american 2 row, flaked barley, choc, aromatic, special b, crystal, black pat, etc.)

Mashed at 156 for 60 minutes with no salts added to water (local colorado water is just fine thanks) Sparged at 180 and hit OG right on.

Boiled 60 minutes full boil - pitched 2.75 oz Willamette @ 30 min, pitched .75 oz East Kent Goldings @ 10 minutes with yeast nutrient and whirlfloc

transferred to 6 gal better bottle, agitated, pitched safale-05

notable activity after just 7 hours, really chugging after about 24 hrs

After pitching yeast I took out 5 madagascar vanilla beans and chopped them up -> put them in mason jar with Appleton Jamaican Rum and sealed -> to be added to secondary before transfer

The color on this porter is going to be fantastic I can tell already...I'll post a picture or two ASAP.

Cheers

feel free to email me for the exact recipe and I'll give it out... By the way Dry Dock has won 4 gold medals at GABF in the past for this brew...

update : 48 hours - krausen is getting hefty and the smells coming from the airlock are divine.

The beer looks good...

I live in Denver and they use chloramine to treat the water so I always add half of a campden tablet to my batch water and let it sit out over night. My mash ph is usually a bit high but I remedy it with a 1/4t or so of gypsum and a pinch of epsom salt.

5 beans seems like a lot of vanilla - let us know how it turns out...
