I can tell you that the first tastes after a week were like flat Guinness, but a bit sweeter. With the limited hops I used (1 oz Fuggles) i have a fairly sweet profile. Wish I would have added a few more near the end to increase the IBU's a bit.

I did a secondary with mine, and added the entire contents(the beans and their seeds and everything) hoping to get the most out of the vanilla flavor. I think it worked well but I don't have any evidence to say that it wouldn't work as well with only a primary. Guess my thought was that the beans and stuff would get lost in the thick primary trub too soon.

Guess I'm just most worried about doing the transfer since I've never done one.

That's cool. I would still urge you to up to ante on the Jameson's while you still can. With 2 cups you won't be able to detect it. Nobody that tasted mine was able to.

I didn't have an Jameson's around (i'm more of a Bushmill/Black Bush guy) so I had to use some Feckin' Irish Whisky I was given. I think I might go thro another cup in the container to up the ante a bit.

Yeah buddy! I prefer Bushmills to Jameson also, just went for the traditional car bomb. Midwest supplies sells a sort of Baileys concentrate, which I'm also considering using on my 2nd attempt.
