Looks good. How much whiskey u using? What type? Get ur vanilla beans soaking. Also ull need to let it condition for a while to lessen some of the alcohol burn.

i will be using either a 5th or a liter of jameson. i will also be infusing the whiskey with cocoa to give it a more chocolatey hint.

Bro that will probably too much whiskey. I was at 20 oz and that was plenty. Need to make to balance it all. I would add some malto if I did it again. Also use some carapills and barley and oatmeal flaked. Made a whiskey stout w those and the head stand is phenom. Much better than the carbomb recipe I used.

ok so i will be using bushmills instead of jameson since our base doesnt seem to have any or know when they will be getting more.

20oz of whiskey
2 vanilla beans sliced and diced
1 1/4 tsp of vanilla extract
1 1/2 tbsp of hersheys natural unsweetened cocoa powder

i am using both extract an bean infusion because people were talking about not having enough vanilla flavor. i am adding the cocoa to give it a more chocolatey flavor.

i was also thinking of adding some vanilla bean to the last 5 minutes of boil for aroma, what do you guys think?

If u soak the cut beans in the whiskey for 2 weeks or more u will get good vanilla flavor especially initially. That seems like a lot of vanilla extract to add in addition.

Cool it will be soaking for about 2 weeks maybe a little more.

I was reading the vanilla stout recipe and it saids to add 2 1/2 tbsp in the secondary. Maybe something like that but less.

Also maybe adding some in the last 5 mins of boil for aroma?

Hey OP,


Boiling my wort for the original recipe RIGHT NOW...... You mentioned in the original recipe "get vanilla beans" and then later there was a statement about tripling the amount of vanilla beans.... Then in this updated recipe you call for 1-2, does that include the tripling in your opinion or is this still pretty strong vanilla with 1-2? CAN NOT WAIT to try this. Thanks for the recipe!!
