I brewed this 9/15 and hit 1.071 and 1.082 OG. I had to do two batches. I wanted ten gallons made so I could bottle and hand out 6 packs for Christmas. Having 10 gallon coolers I couldn't do a single double batch.
I kegged and put them on gas after two weeks in primary. I got 1.007 FG on both. Today I tried the lower OG batch and its really smooth. The vanilla is a little strong for me but not by much. From what others have said it looks like this will mellow over time. Carbonation was low but I turned up the gas.
There it is. What a beautiful color.
