Just go with the cheap stuff...you will taste the vanilla, not the vodka!

Brewed this one up last weekend but changed the yeast to WLP013 London Ale and switched out my first hop addition. I think I used perle, but was pretty buzzed so I would have to look at my notes. Had really good fermentation activity within a few hours that lasted a few days and am really looking forward to this one.

Will do. My last 2 Porters I used WLP002 so I wanted to change it up a bit. Plus I had some extra Perle, Challenger, and Chinook so I know I used one of them for the bittering.
