Great beer try it!!
I brewed this using liquid yeast option. I did a full batch boil...pitched yeast at 70 cooled to 65 after 24 hours. Slow to start airlock activity maybe 29 hours or so then a slow steady bubble. Airlock stopped so I added beans 7 days later. Gravity at 1.022 so I rocked bucket a bit to get yeast back in suspension and warmed to 70 for a few days. Started working again within a few hours. 7 days later gravity was at 1.016 a bit over recommended finish (1.014) but it tasted great and I thought better than Breckenridge (had one in fridge for direct comparison). Breckenridge tends to be sweet after a few this one is perfect. Kegged it at 20 psi yesterday tasted today and it is smooth as silk. Nice and balanced and great mouth feel. Sure to be on rotation now. Thanks adventures in home brewing for a home run kit. Fresh fresh fresh !!! You guys rock! I have been recommending to all my friends whom usually buy from other sites....the liquid yeast cooler is a very nice added bonus - perfect for lunch!!

Smooth Porter with subtle vanilla flavor
This is a delicious Porter enhanced by a subtle vanilla bean flavor. Easy to brew and easier to drink. The addition of real vanilla beans in secondary is a brilliant combination. Yum!

Great Vanilla flavor
This beer has a lot of malt in the recipe and yet very well bananced with good lacing and vanilla flavor. A real treat on a Wisconsin winter evening. I will make this one again. Very pleased.

Gone in 8 days
Made this in November to be ready for the Christmas holiday parties. First time using Liquid Yeast. Added 2 additional vanilla beans during secondary. Ended up with very strong vanilla smell, yet flavor was pretty balanced. Kegged and forced carbed 4 weeks after brew day. With bringing growlers over to parties and having friends over, all 5 gallons disappeared in 8 days! Definitely will make again.

Great Christmas nightcap
I just cracked my first one here on Christmas night. A wonderful holiday/cold weather brew. Made with Wyeast 1098 and did 2 weeks in the primary and another week in the secondary where I soaked the vanilla beans in vodka prior to racking. Nice vanilla flavor and aroma. Easy drinking, but enough flavor to sit back and savor each sip. Proud that I included this beer in my holiday 6-packs to friends and family this year. I will do this brew again in Christmas 2015.

For my first ever brew, this came out better than expected... with expectations that there was no way I could nail it on my first try, I am seriously impressed. Drank one last night. Still has a few days left of carbonation to go. Most don't use secondary, but we did for extra precaution. About a week before racking the beer, I soaked the vanilla beans in some Johnny Walker double black. With smokey flavor and vanilla undertones, I threw the whole thing in the secondary. And it was a really good idea. Gave the beer a little more warmth for the winter. Only thing I would do different is use more vanilla beans!!!!

Great kit
I normally brew all grain but I had been disappointed in my last batch and was saving up to buy some new and additional equipment to improve the process. I bought this kit and it arrived quickly and without issues. They also shipped it for free! I did some modifications by adding 1 1/2 cups of Makers Mark at kegging time as well as using Wyeast 1450 for yeast instead of the yeast recommended. It has been in the keg for a few days now and will probably try it in another week or so. Preliminary tasting is very good though.

Great Kit
Kit was received quickly. Opened the box and was greeted with wonderful aromas from the grain and the vanilla. Brew day was quick and simple. Dropped vanilla beans in secondary and transferred beer after a week of fermentation. Beer tasted great on transfer, chocolate and malt flavors. Looking forward to drinking the finished product.

Absolutely awesome!!!
I made this Porter this past winter and love it. Probably one of the best brews I have made. Very subtle vanilla flavor and the porter. Ahh. I am ordering another kit and probably will add more vanilla bean to this batch. Thinking maybe in the primary and secondary. But don't be afraid to brew it as per recipe because it is fantastic. I gave a fellow brewer a few bottles to check out, and he told me that it was competition quality and he is a very experienced brewer and not light with his compliments. Can't say enough about this one but try it. You won't be sorry.
