This is a fairly sweet stout with an IBU similar to Guinness Draught.
5# Lite/Pale LME
1# Chocolate Malt
1# Crystal 60
8oz Flaked Oats
8oz Roasted Barley
1oz Fuggles Pellets (60min)
Steep the grains in 3 gallons water at 155 degrees for 30 minutes. Use cheese cloth or steeping bag. Remove grains and add LME and Fuggles hops. Return to heat, boiling for 60 minutes. Remove from heat, chill quickly and add 2 gallons cold water to assist chilling and achieve 5 gallon wort.
Transfer to primary, pitch yeast. Let this ferment for a good 2 weeks.
While wort is in primary, get real Vanilla beans, cut them the long way and then into 1/2" pieces, then soak them in 1-2 cups of Jameson (depending on how much you want the Jamie flavor to come through) shaking for ~30 seconds everyday for as long as your worts in primary. Letting it soak in Alcohol will release a lot of the flavors as Vanilla beans are soluble in alcohol.
After 2 weeks, combine the stout and vanilla whiskey mix into secondary and let it age for 2-4 weeks. With the added Jameson and vanilla, this is a fairly sweet stout with an IBU similar to Guinness Draught, but the added flavors from an Irish Car Bomb!
