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!!!!
