Is there an extract version of this? Can't do AG right now and the recipe sounds awesome....

What would you think about using vanilla beans instead of the extract? It might give a real rich vanilla flavor to it. The only worry I have, if I did use it is using too much and over powering the beer with vanilla.

I'm planning on brewing this tomorrow, but I have a question... this says it's a 5 gallon recipe, but it looks like you collected 11 gallons from the mash? You didn't boil off 6 gallons, did you?

Yes, it's regular vanilla extract.

I was wondering the same thing.

I tried this with whole vanilla beans instead of just extract. I used two beans, split and scraped, at the end of the boil. Then I boiled another 4 oz. lactose in 12 oz water with another vanilla bean and added it to the secondary. I think I threw in an ounce of vanilla extract as well. My goal is a slightly more subtle vanilla flavor. I plan on bottling it in a couple days. We'll see what happens...

What's the target mash temp on this? I'm guessing since the ingredients add up to 11 lbs, this is a 5.5 gal recipe, despite the note about running off 11 gallons. Can anyone comment on what you did and how it turned out?
