I'm not seeing (not experienced in using it) when to use it, I'm hoping I'm figuring correctly that you use it in the 2ndary, since it's listed below the 2ndary adjuncts.
I read it's not fermentable by yeast, so I'm think it's not in lieu of the priming sugar.
Your knowledge and assistance is greatly appreciated!!!

Oh, also, did you find that the oils from the vanilla bean wasn't an issue?

Thanks!!!
You want to add the lactose anytime during the boil so that it will disolve into the wort, also it is partly fermentable. The vanilla bean poses not trouble.

Tried last night... Delicious! Nice cocoa taste, with a faint cayenne spice at the end

Thanks for this very cool recipe, I'm excited about this one. Will probably brew within a month. By the way, by scraping the vanilla bean do you mean literally to scrap it with a knife into the secondary or should I crush it in some way basically?

New brewer here and Im really interested in this beer as it sounds very similar to one of my favourite beers Heartstopper by Paddock Woods Brewery in Saskatoon, Sk. I just have one question regarding the ingredients, what is milk sugar? and where might I find it?

Milk sugar is Lactose and you should be able to pick it up at your homebrew shop or any online retailer. It is a pretty common ingredient.

Brewed this in Aug and has been on tap for a few weeks now. So far everyone likes it! The heat/warmth hits you as an after taste. Very happy with this brew, great fall brew!

Anyone try mixing the Cocoa/Vanilla Beans/Cayenne in a Vodka tincture before adding to secondary?
