It was then 1.042-44 hard to tell.

Where do you guys get the vanilla beans?

Now what to brew next?
Amazon.

Has anyone else had any trouble with the head on this recipe? I have none. Just wondering what I did wrong?

If you use the Extract in the Fermenter the Vanilla Extract will hinder the head in the beer. I don't know the science behind it but I do know in my original recipe where I used extract the head was basically non-existent due to the extract.

I'm brewing this on Saturday. I'm going to do a 6 gallon batch and I'm going to ferment 1 gallon with coffee added and the rest without. I am using 6lbs of Dark DME (no LME) and 1lb of extra light DME. Brewer's Friend gives me an estimated 1.053 OG and 1.012 FG coming to about 5.35% ABV.
I'll be doing 2-3 (depending on price) vanilla beans soaked in 8oz of "home-smoked" bourbon.

This will be my first dark brew and even more so, my first "non-busy hop schedule" brew. Can't wait to test it out.

FWIW, I put a whole quarter cup of vanilla extract in my last batch and two months later the flavor is basically undetectable. I'll make this again, but I'll be using beans from now on!
