Thanks for the input,
I kinda of went a bit crazy today
12.0 LB Weyermann PA
1. LB Chocolate Grain
10 oz Black Patent
.5 Carafa II
mash @ 154 for 60.
pre boil threw in a German milk chocolate about 8 oz and 6 oz Hersey's Bakers' Cocoa.
2 OZ saaz 60.
1 OZ MT hood flame out with 3 vanilla beans
2L starter 1028
and I took out the Vanilla beans and as much as the trube as possible and got 1.081. either I am getting better at this or I had too many beers.
efficiency should be 80% with those numbers
Ill put it in the secondary in a few weeks taste it and decide if I am going to add Vanilla beans to the secondary or add bourbon soak beans either way I enjoyed having fun with this beer so far.
