i brewed this on Nov 17th, so 2 1/2 weeks ago (the 5 days was just for coconut in
secondary).Trox---yeah, that wild dip to the low fifties. Maybe swirl it a bit and let it sit

Posted in thread: Adding oak and vanilla to a big porter with bourbon on 11-28-2013 at 12:18 AM
i think a 1/2 to 3/4 C of bourbon, soak the vanilla beans, scrape the insides & add it all to
secondary for a week or two. don't forget to soak or steam the wood---i've only soaked.
