OK, so, this weekend I'll be moving this to the secondary. Did you drop the vanilla beans in with the oak chips and the Jameson into the secondary or pull those out? Will it hurt it to just throw the beans in the secondary? Been catching little whiffs of this every couple days (the jameson, oak chips and vanilla beans) and it smells AWESOME. I'm pretty stoked to see how this turns out.
One other question. I used the 12 ounces of Jameson with the 8 ounces of oak chips, it's definitely not totally immersed. i.e. the oak chips aren't floating in Jameson. Is that how it's supposed to be, the ratio there just doesn't seem quite right, but I'm sure it'll still turn out well.
My batch has been bottled for just over a week, I KNOW it's not carbonated, but it's killing me wanting to crack a bottle open and try it finished. Damn you patience, damn you science, why can't you work in my favor?!?!?!?!
This is my first time posting on here and this was my second brew. I'm drinking one right now as of 1.5 weeks after bottling and it's already delicious! It's not fully carbonated yet but I'm hoping by St. Pattys it will be good enough to serve. Thank you all for the input.
I don't know why my text didnt show up in the last post. But I wanted to say...this has been aged for about a month and it's absolutely delicious. I'm having a party Saturday for St Pattys and I'm sure this is going to be gone in no time.
