Has anyone tried just adding the vanilla bean to the secondary instead of the tea mix? I wonder if that would give it too much vanilla flavor? Thoughts?

Thanks for this recipe! I'm going to brew this Sunday to have it ready just in time for New Years Eve, but I have one question: the recipe refers to Medium Crystal malt. What lovibond would that be? Thanks!

60L. I use Hugh Baird but most English Malts labeled medium will be around the lovibond. Love those English crystal malts...

Alright so I'm pretty new to homebrewing but I've jumped In head first and love doing it so far. I only have 5 batches under my belt to date, 2 extract and 3 partial mash but all of my batches have turned out pretty good in my opinion and In the opinions of my willing taste tasters : )
Right now I'm working on making the move to AG but I'm not there quite yet.. I love the sound of this recipe and after reading through all the replays I want to try it out. But how do I convert an AG recipe into a partial mash??

I know a guy on page 2 or 3 did a partial mash but I have no idea where he pulled the amounts from... Like I said, I'm new to most of this so I would love some insight. Thanks!

Does this recipe need to be altered for BIAB?
