I've brewed this a couple times, and I use 3 beans soaked in JD. It is nice, with a subtle vanilla flavor. I don't think you'll be disappointed. It certainly isn't overpowering.

Second time brewing it myself. My first all-grain brew though. Can't decide if I want to bottle or keg it though. Bottling makes it easier to share but adds about 2-3weeks to the wait.

My LHBS has a ridiculously embarrassing selection of liquid yeast.
I used US-05. No problems!

At my house, this one doesn't last very long. The keg might be gone before the bottles mature.

brewed this today, ALL GRAIN
ingredients went something like this

8 lbs pale malt (2 row)
1 lb red wheat malt
1 lb chocolate malt
1 lb roasted barley

1.5 oz east kent goldings (bittering)
2.0 oz east kent goldings (finishing)

yeast: white labs irish ale yeast

efficiency: 64%
OG: 1.046

went reasonably smooth, kinda upset by the efficiency, because i thought we did a great job milling the grains..... oh well, we'll see in a few weeks

i have some jim beam black cherry bourbon sitting around (classy, i know) that i think i'll be soaking the vanilla bean in... could be either great, or a complete train wreck, we'll see

anyone have efficiency suggestions?

I ended up not repitching. It tastes pretty good but it is light on the vanilla flavor. Definitely gonna do this one again.

Drained 5 gallons from the carboy into the keg last night. Cranked up the pressure and hoping to get a taste of this on Sunday.
