  • Posted in thread: Will (some) the Vanilla Flavor Drop Out on 09-23-2016 at 02:50 AM
    I made a vanilla porter with about 8 beans in 5 gallons (I got em really cheap). After 2 months
    in the bottle the vanilla was so strong I couldn't even drink it. After 6 months it had
    mellowed out bea...

    When I first got into it, I asked at a couple of bars if I could take their empties. Most of em
    said "Our recycling guy picks up on Tuesday, so come on Monday" or something like it. Don't
    your bars ha...

    I've used both corn sugar and cane sugar and couldn't tell much difference. For one batch I
    think you're just fine using what you have on hand. I do use corn sugar regularly because it's

    bucket, the...

    My first half dozen batches suffered from inconsistent or very low carbon. I did the typical
    process with corn sugar. I eventually narrowed it down to poor mixing. Now I rack to the bucket
    first and a...

    I wouldn't worry, he won't take much.

    P.S. I ended up leaving everything to "steep" overnight, and simply strained before bottling,
    so that final product was a bit cloudy. Also, I'd recommend the pasteurization process that's
    laid out in ...

    Here's my journal entry for a non alcohol ginger beer that turned out great. Presumably you
    could balance the sugars (I didn't figure for final alcohol, just did to taste) and just let
    the yeast finis...

    You should make a go-fund-me to revive whatever isn't salvageable and post it here. I'd donate.
