It freed up 6 Anchor bottles, which add to the collection for a future batch of something I decide to bottle.

GLAD IT'S GONE!!!!!

Cool, I'll be sure to send you over some of my porter, to make up for it.

FWIW, if you ever do the vanilla stout again, don't use vodka to extract the flavor. Try using pure grain alcohol (Everclear). An ex-girlfriend's late father made the best homemade vanilla extract and that is what he used.
