Just checked on this one and it's still got a good third of an inch of krausen hanging at the top after almost 20 days. I think the graham crackers might of had something to do with that, has anyone else had this happen? Im going to give it 2 or 3 more days and then throw in the vanilla beans. It's smelling great so far.

Slim, thanks for the great recipes. I have both this and your Lemon Lime hefe fermenting right now. I'm looking really forward to drinking both.

Do you think if/when you brew this again, could you please take an OG reading and update the recipe? I, like many others here got 1.072, but I had read prior to brewing that your OG may not be correct, so I didn't do any adjustments. It just helps to have a target. I also accidentally put all 8 oz of baker's chocolate I had in. That's what happens when people stop over while I'm brewing. I'm hoping it will just turn out more S'moresey.

I haven't brewed this one in awhile, because I have been working on other recipes...so give me a few months and I will revisit this one!

Just bottled this beer. Tasted a sample. Rules hard. Graham cracker scent came through very well. Vanilla flavor awesome. Super excited. Wife gave 2 thumbs up. Thanks for the recipe!

Glad you liked it...this beer will age really nice in the bottle, I had one that had been bottled for over 6 months and it was amazing!

Maybe a dumb question but do i crush up the graham crackers and add them to the mash or boil? Can wait to get started on a batch recipe sounds awesome.

Brewed this one tonight. Best smelling mash I've had in the tun so far, by far! Only doing a 2 gallon batch, my OG came in at 1.064. Taste.....amazing, and will only get better with fermentation and conditioning.

Thanks for this one, SD!

Three weeks in bottle. A little high alcohol flavor. Will let condition a while longer. Graham cracker flavor and vanilla present but not overbearing. Minimal head but nice lacing. Mouth feel fantastic, great body. 7.5 abv a few of these will make your babies born naked! Thanks again for the recipe slim!
