I just realized that the vanilla beans I have are probably 6 inches long. Were the two beans you split longer than that? If anything, I could split and use a few of them, there are 6 in the package.

The one I used was probably about that or a little longer.

I have been thinking about this brew since I first stumbled onto this recipe. I finally broke down and brewed it last night. Wow, it tastes great already.

Kegged mine over the weekend. I ended up woth about 4 2/3 gallons. I've purged the air and now I just have to have the patience to wait another month before I break that keg open. Good God this stuff smells great!

So I figured I'd post some pics.
Mine turned out much lighter than yours but I may know why. I also am going to leave mine a little bit shorter on the vanilla next time.
As for now, I'm waiting for Christmas morning . Cheers.

Thanks man! Brewed this last night and I am really excited for this. I used white lab Irish ale yeast cause I had it around. I pitched the vial at 2 AM (I dont know why I started brewing at 10PM on a weeknight...seemed like a good idea at the time), woke up, and it was fermenting at 8 AM. Doesn't have much foam at the top-might be because I used regular cocoa?

That'd be my guess. Did the same and had very minimal krausen on top. FG came out to 1.020 even about a month later though, so no worries.

Hmm...I was thinking about trying to skim off the top layer when kegging and adding to secondary...I think I can see a little bit of the oil on top. Still fermenting though so hard to tell.
