has been bottled for just over a week now, i tried one very prematurely about 3 days after bottling. The vanilla overwhelmed me, i was worried i had added too much vanilla.
I opened one last night, and to my pleasure, the vanilla has begun to mellow out very nicely. Comes on as a nice afterthought now, as well the aroma of the vanilla is strong.
I won't open the next one for another week, as the carbonation was obviously still lacking. I was just very happy to see the vanilla mellowing out nicely, and the profile of the beer coming through and meshing now.
Looks like this is gonna be a good one!
