    Thanks for the reply.I'm going to pull a sample and force carb it. We'll see how it goes! I'm
    thinking about throwing in some vanilla bean into the keg if all goes well.

    I've got a barley wine that's been sitting on 3oz of medium toast American Oak that life got in
    the way of, lol. I've oaked in the past with pleasant results but no longer than 4 months so im

    I did a pumpkin brown recently and I feel the pumpkin used in the mash definitely gave the beer
    noticeable flavor, especially when the pumpkin is roasted. I'll also agree that it gave a

    Just split the bean and toss it in.This is fine. I scrape them but shouldn't matter. Main thing

    This is exactly the type of recipe I want to do this weekend for my Cinco De Mayo party. Is it
    true the acids from the peppers kill the head-retention? Any suggestions as a work around of
    this?Thanks....

    This looks great and I'm looking forward to trying it out myself. I've always wanted to use
    chillis in my brew. I think you're off to a great start, but here's a few suggestions:I might
    consider pushi...

    For future batches I wouldn't have put the vanilla into the boil. I find that the compounds
    you're trying to take from the vanilla are extremely volatile and degrade quickly with the
    exposure to heat ...

    I've got a dryhopped coffee IPA that's almost a year old. I cracked one open for St. Patty's
