Did you use bean or extract?

I'm using an extract my brother gave to me. Pure Madagascar Bourbon vanilla or something like that. He picked it up at a Kitchen/Cooking supply store.

Okay, I'm adding this to my queue and Beersmith. I'm wondering, is this an American Stout (13E) because of the OG, even though the color is a bit low? Or, a Specialty Beer (23A)? Which is just a catch-all category. Or a Sweet Stout (13B), but again, the SRM is low?

Just bottled on saturday, after a 3 week primary and a week with the vanilla in secondary. I used 2.5-3 tablespoons of vanilla extract. The vanilla smell is strong, and lays on the tongue nicely as an aftertaste ... from what i tasted of what was left in the bottling bucket. All in all, i can't wait to open the first one.

The guy at my brew supply store said I can just add the vanilla extract to my bottling bucket and bottle from there. Will that hurt the flavor? Will the yeast in the bottle eat the extract? Is secondary fermenting the only way to get the vanilla taste you're talking about. I also added a pound of oatmeal to the recipe to smooth it about a bit. Hope that won't bite me in the bum.

I bottled this on the 28th of November. I cracked one open this past Friday to make sure everything was carbing right and even under a week in the bottle this stuff was amazing. I only put in 1.5 tbsp of vanilla because I ran out and you could still taste the vanilla. This is definitely going into my normal rotation.

has been bottled for just over a week now, i tried one very prematurely about 3 days after bottling. The vanilla overwhelmed me, i was worried i had added too much vanilla.

I opened one last night, and to my pleasure, the vanilla has begun to mellow out very nicely. Comes on as a nice afterthought now, as well the aroma of the vanilla is strong.

I won't open the next one for another week, as the carbonation was obviously still lacking. I was just very happy to see the vanilla mellowing out nicely, and the profile of the beer coming through and meshing now.

Looks like this is gonna be a good one!

I'm going to rack this to secondary tomorrow, I have 3 vanilla beans soaking in a 1/2 pint of Makers. Would adding coffee & chocolate to this in addition to the bourbon & vanilla be too much?
