Caca: thanks for the welcome
Shepherd: thanks for the welcome and hope your Pliny comes out well.
I did bottle my porter, it was an extract recipe from the Ballast point guys. I left it in primary for 2 weeks and then added some Vanilla beans and let it sit for 2 more weeks. The hydro sample tasted awesome. Now for the waiting for the carbing process. I am brewing another batch of this porter right now, it is nice and simple and gives me time to work on my process.
This hobby is addicting, but at least my SWMBO encourages it.
Good brewing prayers to all.
