    you mentioned 6 oz with another vanilla bean in secondary? And then 4 more oz in the bottling
    bucket? Than...

    I brewed this about three weeks ago. I kegged it over the weekend and oh man does it smell
    good. Couple of things to note; it was racked onto two vanilla beans that I slit and scraped

    Wow, I can't believe I never thought of that. You wouldn't believe what I've been through
    trying to get that damn thing to work right. I ended up putting it on the shelf cause I got so

    Okay 1/2 cup coffee.SRM is coming in at 54.What SRM do you think I should be aiming for?I'd say
