I made it and I'm the only person alive who can't stand it. I used 1/2 the vanilla in the recipe while bottling, but it's still way too much vanilla for me. I like the color, the smell, the texture, the mouthfeel. But the vanilla is too much. Maybe I'll make it again with no vanilla, or at least just a little in the primary.

I'm giving it away, and others seem to like it. In fact, one of my friends just LOVES it. Her first words were, "MMMMMM" when she tasted it.

Lorena,

How long has it been since you bottled it? I had kegged it 3 weeks after brewing it. 2 weeks in the keg, I took it to a party. It was very very sweet. 1 week later & it's a totally different beer.

I don't like vanilla as a primary flavor (not even in ice cream), so I didn't try it. When I use vanilla in a chocolate ale, I use about a teaspoon in five gallons.

I have mad this beer and can say that everyone that has tried it liked it. I intend to make this again when I start kegging. I took this to my local Homebrew club and the most common compliment was that "it doesn't even taste like beer", I hope that is a good thing.

Thanks! I appreciate the feedback, even the negative feedback. I'm just happy that the majority seem to like it, and I feel bad that those who didn't like it wasted their time and money.
