I wouldn't be overly concerned with sanitation of the extract since you're making it by soaking the vanilla beans in alcohol. Just sanitize the jar first if you're worried.

Default Great Beer!


I brewed a batch of this and soaked three vanilla beans in 2 oz. of Bernheim wheat whisky which has a sweetness to it.
I bottled it and am having a hard time letting it mature. I tried the first bottle 3 weeks after bottling and it was amazing. I've been back for 3 more already.
It has a chocolaty sweetness with very nice vanilla notes that are there but not overpowering. I'm getting ready to do a double batch of this over the weekend. I'm going to bottle 1/2 and try kegging it and letting it age for a few months...

So I haven't been on the board in while (busy with work, coaching, etc) but I am very surprised to see how many hits this beer has. I am going to attempt to remake the beer over X-Mas Break using some of the aforementioned adaptations. Sadly it won't be all grain, maybe I will have the supplies this summer.

I just did this one this weekend as my first brew. I am sure I made a few mistakes along the way, not the least being that I added too much water at the end and brought the SG down to about 1.042. Anything that can be done at this stage to help it?

Don't mess with it.... you will have more beer...darn! LOL! A little less alcohol, but I never mind that. It'll be fine, just roll with it!

Brewing my third batch of this one today. Previously I've done the extract version. Today we are doing AG to compare. I'm sure it will be yummy.

Check your gravity in a couple days. If it's the same as today go ahead and bottle.

Just cracked my first smoked vanilla bourbon stout. I think I should have added more priming sugar, but will know better in a few days. Nice and smooth, tasty...really digging it!

I.brewed this one tonight! It's my third brew ever and first dark. Pretty fun brew, needed a few lifeline calls to my dad thru the process. Wow is this a dark one, yum. I used 7 lbs of the liquid malt because the local store had it in bulk 7lb jugs. I was thinking I would have a higher gravity but in the end it was around 1.076 and I added some water and tested it. It was then 1.042-44 hard to tell.

Where do you guys get the vanilla beans?

Now what to brew next?
