Secondary was a week to give it time to pick up a little bit from the vanilla bean. Tempers the bitter from the chocolate just a hair.
"Science + beer = good!"
I'm bottling this this weekend, cant wait till mid december when i try some!
Meh, throw one in the fridge a couple days before Thanksgiving and crack it open after dinner.
Mine has been in the bottles for 4 weeks now. Four more and I'll probably consider tasting one.
So I'm hoping mine is conditioned enough by new years.
Brewed on 10/23
It will finish seconday on 11/20.
That will leave 1 moth for bottle conditioning. I'd like a little bit more time but I think that they might be drinkable by then.
I cracked my first one at 3 weeks, IIRC. It was a little warm on the alcohol, but was very drinkable. After another 2 weeks, the hot alcohol flavor was gone.
I plan on bottling mine this weekend. Time has gotten away from me, and I've left it for a while in the carboy. I'll keep you posted!
Bottled last night, tasted great! Can't wait til this carbs up!
