Just brewed a 10 gallons on Saturday, this was an all grain version, I've brewed the extract version and if was amazing! When I transfer to secondary 5 gallons will sit on oak Chips and vanilla Beans soaked in bourbon while the other 5 gallons will secondary on top of coco nibs vanilla beans and coffee. Here is a shot of my buddies watching the brewing process, the dude on the right is my brew buddy, behind them is the brew rig.

Going to go ahead and brew an all grain version of this next week when I have a spare carboy. I'm thinking soak oak and vanilla in makers mark for a few weeks and than secondary it. 152 for the mash sound right? Going to use us05 at 60 for the primary.

When I plugged this brew into beer smith the estimated gravity is 1.065, I hit 1.066 at completion of the boil for a 10 gal brew.

I just made a porter with Maker's...and wasn't happy with the amount of flavor imparted. If you can swing it, try using "Cask Strength" Bourbon. I think that would give a more authentic bourbon barrel presence, than the watered down Maker's. Just a suggestion.

Thanks for the heads up. Will see what I can do.

Just brewed a batch and have had it sitting in the secondary for about a week. I used home made vanilla extract and added a few of the beans from our extract bottle. Due to my late start and the need to have it on tap for our thanksgiving gathering I'm going to keg it a bit earlier than I normally would. Would there be any harm in tossing the beans into the keg to keep adding to the vanilla flavor?

Probably not, for the amount of time the beer will be in the keg. However, dependent on how long the beans were in the extract, they may have already contributed all their flavor. So...lets say the beans were in the alcohol for around 8 weeks...then they are most likely not going to contribute anything to the beer.

Only drawback I see is they may get pulled into the pick up tube and block it....I doubt you'll get any contribution though. I soak my beans for 3 days then rack the wort on them for 7-14 days.

I made the extract version but think I made a huge error. Previously I have only used kits, this was my first extract. Followed instructions regarding steeping fine, the recipe then just says 'boil'. I now realize that the boil was probably meant to have the liquid malt/DME added Basically my boil liquid was just the product of the patent/barley steep in 2 gallons of water. I added the liquid and dry malts to the primary.

Put this brew down yesterday and it is bubbling away so I will let it run its course unless someone have a great suggestion. I was really just after some speculation about whether it will taste ok.

I did the numbers and my hop extraction would have been in a gravity of about 1.005. Does this mean my stout might turn out much too bitter? Kinda gutted as this was also my first try with liquid yeast (wyeast 1084) so it was a relatively time consuming and expensive one to muck up.
