    Last min porter I decided to brew tonight. Left work 30 min early, stopped at the lhbs to get specialty grains on the way home.

    5.5 gal batch, 7 gal pre-boil
    11 lbs 2-row
    1 lb chocolate
    1 lb C20
    .25 lb black patent
    8 oz maltodextrin(boil @10min)
    Mash @150F

    60 min Boil
    1.5 oz N. Brewer @60min (7% AA)

    WL001
    Ferment at 66F

    75% eff
    OG - 1.068
    IBU - 32
    SRM - 34

    I was going to add lactose to make it quite sweet and silky. However, some of my friends are vegan so I subbed in maltodextrin so they would partake.

    My wife thinks I(we) should add vanilla beans to secondary. Thoughts? I was leaning more towards chipoltle peppers

    Vanilla would be awesome ... just don't overdo it
    Never attribute to malice, that which can adequately be explained by stupidity.

    Personal tastes say vanilla beans screw off peppers. But that's just me.

    you altered a beer recipe so that more of your friends would drink it?

    this is a clear case of insanity. someone call the white coats.

    Vegans in Texas? I thought that was illegal.
