When mine was at that point, it was the opposite - too much vanilla! Although I did put in more than 5x the recommended amount of vanilla extract. It turned out great and of the 4 bottles left from this 9 month old batch, 3 are competing in a homebrew competition next week. We'll see how she does.

Relax and let it age, it'll turn out great!

Just finished my keg. Was my 2nd batch and won't be my last. Hasn't disappointed anyone that's tasted it.

Hi, Quick question. I bought the hops for this extract recipe and the %'s are different. Should I just use less to adjust for the bitterness/ flavor/aroma?

1 oz Cluster (7.00%) at 60 minutes =>=> I bought 7.4% Cluster
1 oz East Kent Goldings (4.00) at 20 minutes I bought 5.0% East kent Goldings

Really don't think youll need to worry about it.

Voilà

I just had my first vanilla stout.

This beer was my second one, (made some lemonade and cider before)

This was a horrible story, everything went bad the day I made it, a lot of possible infection ( Even the tail of a cat).

I had to put K-meta in it because I was sure it was infected.

ANyway, after 1 month in primary a good strong starter and only 2 week and 3 days in bottles (I know it's too fast but It was only a test)....

This Is an incredible stout, I maybe not very experimented in making beer, but I know stout, and the beer I though would be discusting because of the horrible brew day is now very good, and that's for a green beer....I can't imagine the taste in 3-4 months.

Will brew it again for sure.

I'm completely new to recipe brewing (have done 4 kits, thus far) and have a couple of questions.

Is there a timeline for when I add which items (there may be a "norm" thats unknown to me, if so, I apologize)? Do I steep the Black Patent Malt and Roasted Barley for 35 minutes, then add the LME/DME, then at 25 minutes later (at the 60 minute mark), add the Clusters? I'm assuming that I then boil for 70 minutes, and at the 50 minute mark (20 min left) add the East Kent Goldings, and 5 minutes later add the Irish Moss?

Sorry for the most basic of questions, but I'm really wanting to try this recipe. Thanks in advance!

First, crush/crack your grains (Not sure if you already knew that, but wanted to make sure)

Warm steeping water to 150degs and add crushed grains. Leave for 35mins using whatever means you do to maintain temp at ~150degs.

Remove grain bag and get your "tea" boiling. Once it is boiling, cut the heat off to slowly stir in extracts.. Once completely dissolved, return to boil.

Total boil time should be 70 mins, so, the first hop addition (1 0z Cluster) is at 10 minutes after boil starts.

Second hop addition (1oz Kent Golding) is at 50 minutes after boil starts.

Irish moss is added 5 minutes later (55 minutes after boils starts).

Cool to ~70 degs and add yeast in primary fermentation vessel.

2 weeks after, move to secondary fermentation vessel (minus the yeast "cake" and other sediment) and add vanilla. Wait 7 days before bottling or kegging.

Hows that?

So, I just brewed this and its in the primary. I was doing to many things at once and totally forgot the Dry Malt. How weak do you think it will be? I am hoping it will still turn out ok, maybe just a bit less abv.... I am really bummed. I had big hopes for this one at Christmas.


Ah well. Live and learn
