    So I brewed a rather standard hefeweizen, and made a simple 1L starter, using Wyeast 3068
    Weihenstephan. I ended up with about 5G of wort into the fermenter. Added the yeast starter,
    temperature aroun...

    So I forgot about this thread for a bit. After 6 weeks in the fermenter, with 2 of those being
    on the mango, I transferred to corny keg. This is my first kegging experience since I built my
    keezer. Ad...

  • Posted in thread: Vodka to soak vanilla beans on 11-05-2014 at 02:11 AM
    I used 2, 3, 4 beans on 3 different batches. I liked 3 beans for consumption 3 weeks after
    bottling. The vanilla flavor fades fast.

    How much vodka did you use? I soaked vanilla beans in vodka for a vanilla pumpkin porter. Put
    them in primary for 1 week, then bottled. After 2 weeks in the bottle for carbing, it was
    delicious and di...

    I have made 3 pumpkin beers. As far as someone stating sparge nightmare, add 1 lb of rice hulls
    to the mash. No worries. ;-) Happy Brewing!
