Just brewed beer last night hit OG but only got 4 gallons after boil, first time doing AG in awhile, what are your guys opinion about topping off bad or good and I'm guessing it is going to effect the tea

I wouldnt top it off, just adjust when you make the tea. I just cracked one of these last nite after a few more weeks in the bottle. It tasted really good!!

I don't have any brewer's software. Could someone tell me what temperature they had their water at to reach a mash temperature of 152? I plan on following this recipe as it is.

Theres plenty of free online calculators for this stuff. Brewersfriend.com is the one i use. It all depends on the temp of your grain and the heat loss to the tun, all of these are factored into the calculator. Check it out, its very helpful.

Just sampled this, smooth and flavorful. Big vanilla now, will try again in a few weeks and see how it all comes together

Mine is about 3 weeks in primary now. Gonna brew up the spiced tea this weekend I guess, and throw it in the keg to hopefully be ready for Thanksgiving. Might still be a tad green, but i bet it will taste great. Should be nicely aged by Christmas.

I suppose it would be pushing it to have this brewed and bottle conditioned before xmas this year....

I'm probably going to try it. If I can get it to ferm, closely controlled with good pitch rate, in a week or 9 days, I can crash it and keg it inside of 2 weeks. That gives me about a month to condition.

I suppose I could do that. I'd really like to give it a month in bottles.

I did a pumpkin ale that took nearly that long for the vanilla to mellow out, used 1 bean for 5.5 gallons.
