I made the recipe as is with no changes except I left out the bourbon. No problems with head. I used 2 Madagascar beans from my LHBS.

Here's a photo of my batch poured into an over-sized tulip. Again, I followed the recipe exactly, used 2 Madagascar Vanilla Beans, and about 12 ounces of Makers Mark Bourbon.

Man that looks tasty...

Great to know you can still get head retention with this recipe, wouldn't really want a robust porter to not have that....

Thanks for the responses.

I just brewed this 2 weeks ago and about to rack it onto the vanilla beans. I tasted my hydro sample, and almost pulled another just to drink it! This is going to be a fantastic beer! I'm looking forward to the finished product.

Just bottled this today. I had a hard time not standing over it and inhaling the wonderful aroma the whole time I was racking it to the bottle bucket. The sample tasted great and I usually don't like the taste of green unfermented beer. I'm super psyched to try this after its conditioned.

I made this in December and oak aged it for 2 weeks. It is heavenly.

We also made 5g of it for our wedding.

Gearing up to brew an extract version of this over the weekend. Quick question... I'm assuming the recommendation for the 90-120 minute boil holds true for the extract version as well? 10 or so lbs of LME plus the steeping grains puts this up as the most I've used for a 5 gallon batch before!

Default Brewing this tomorrow


Question on the adding of beans & bourbon...
I'm planing on chopping/scraping the beans (thinking of using 3) & soaking them in 12 oz or so of Jim Beam for 5 days or so.....then dumping into my primary about 2 weeks into fermentation for a week or so.....then keg conditioning for at least a month.

I normally don't use a secondary, am I OK to add to the primary?

According to the recipe the bourbon is usually added at botteling/kegging. Am I ok to add it with the beans in the secondary(primary?)?

Thanks for any help.

As long as the fermentation is complete, you're good.

I'm not mature enough at this stage of my life to store two cases of beer in my house for a year. I really want to drink this three weeks after I bottle it. Also, I don't plan on adding any bourbon. Should I only use one vanilla bean so I don't have to wait for the vanilla flavor to meld?
