This came out really good. I brewed this as instructed but added 1oz liquid vanilla that I bought in the Dominican Republic. That vanilla is not an extract but a liquid so I don't recommend adding 1oz extract. Overall this is one of the best I have tried so far!

Awesome Porter
A very pleasant and well balanced porter. 9 days in primary fermenter, another 9 days in secondary with the 2 vanilla beans, forced carbonated and started drinking it the next day. Almost gone and everyone that's had it likes it. Love the slight red color that reminds me of Guinness. Would love to let it age but it won't last. I'm ordering this again for sure.

Great Beer
Made this beer so it would be ready for Christmas presents. It was good at Christmas, but it is absolutely great in June. It ages extremely well. It's hard to do, but let it age a little!

Great tasting beer. I used a total of 5 vanilla beans. Soaked them in Tito's vodka for 2 weeks and added them in secondary, vodka too. Perfect amount of vanilla flavor, not overwhelming. For this price I will definitely brew it again.

It'd be better with something besides S-04
This is the 5th time I've tried using S-04 and the 3rd time it ended up being a banana bomb. I've gotten it when pitching dry and rehydrating. I control my fermentation temps and this didn't go above 65*F for the first 4 days when I let it ramp up to 69*F to finish. It tastes and smells like I used a Belgian yeast and I'm sure it would have been a good beer had I used Nottingham or US-05, or a liquid yeast for that matter. It's still drinkable but I have to tell people it's a low gravity dubbel. :)

Great Beer!
Ordered this when it was on sale! Great beer! I changed it slightly by adding a bit of caramel 60L to the mash and an extra Vanilla bean. Fantastic beer.

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!
