It really is such a small place, lol. I once went to see a USA vs Spain soccer game in Santander, Spain, only to find a kid I knew from Weston Barlow High standing behind me in line.

Recently racked out of the primary onto 2 split, scraped and chopped Madagascar Vanilla Beans.
It's coming along nicely and smells pretty vanilla(ly).... Picture taken at about the Day 10 mark. It has lightened up in color as well.

Wow! That does look like you are fermenting Orange Juice!

On my screen it looks neon yellow, I was thinking he's fermenting mountain dew...or antifreeze.

I agree and although it looks that way, the picture color seems to be a little off.
I'll try a camera as compared to my iPhone and post the results.

Ok, I resized due to the pressure the picture instead of letting the forum automatically do it. There is a bit of a difference. Kind of now like orange juice without the pulp.
In addition to resizing it beforehand, I also realized that I posted the wrong pic. Wow, and I didn't even start drinking yet.

Antifreeze is sweet, but...

Can't wait to sample it...the Vanilla!

Glad I came across this.

I just made a 1g batch of blueberry vanilla.
Really didnt think anything of it and added 2 vanilla beans, scraped and chopped in half.

For some reason I just thought about it and needed some reasurance that I didnt add to much vanilla lol.

Will be making this recipe for sure sometime soon!

I've just racked this up in the primary. I can't wait to see how it tastes. I had a question about specifics of the directions.

"Rack to secondary after 7-10 days straining out vanilla beans.
Rack after another 3 weeks, should be still in another 2-3 weeks."

Does that mean; 7-10 days in primary, 3 weeks in secondary, bottle?
It reads as though there's a third racking period in there.

Thanks!!
