Default Irish Car Bomb Stout

Hey there, fellow brew brothers and sisters. I came upon this idea here on HBT forums and it was too good to NOT give it a shot. I'm still an extract brewer with around 8 batches under my belt- so maybe it's a little out of my league. But I am fearless and stupid so here we go! I will take any advice or opinions you can offer! Thanks, guys. I am using the iBrewmaster app for the calculations.

Batch size-5 gallons
Boil size- 3 gallons
O.G. - 1.060
F.G. - 1.014
Abv - 6.03%
IBU's - 37

0.50 lbs Carafoam
0.50 lbs Carafa III
0.40 lbs roasted barley
0.40 lbs chocolate malt
6.0 lbs Briess dark LME
1.0 lbs rice syrup solids(leftovers I wanna use up)
1.0 lbs lactose

2 ounces EKG- 60 mins
1 ounce EKG- 30 mins
1 ounce EKG- 10 mins

1 package White Labs California Ale yeast

2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise, and soaked in 2 cups of Jameson's Irish Whiskey for the duration of the primary, and added to the secondary.

Primary - 10 days @ 68•
Secondary - 21 days @ 68•

Do you add the whiskey with the beans?

Awesome idea. I ain't too good at reading recipes though. Curious as to how it'll turn out...

Probably don't need the carafa with the chocolate malt and dark extract.

just an idea but you might want to start with lighter DME
i like to start with the lightest possible and pull all my color/flavor from my specialty grains
With the darker DME you have no idea what ratio they used to acually darken it...
just me .02 =]

Recipe looks BOMB (no pun intended) though! might be stealing this idea

Thanks for the info. Already started my boil, so everybody is in the pool but my last two hop additions. Smells good so far! Does anyone think 37 IBU's is too much for this project? I really don't know. Obviously, I'm just looking to balance this thing a little, not much more than that.

And the color is nice. Really not even as black as I thought it would be, even with a 3 gallon boil. Maybe the lactose adds a lighter shade to it?
