Notes

This is an American cream ale based off of the "creamy goodness" recipe from beersmith.com. it has been modified by adjusting the base malt to 8 pounds. As well as adding a pound of lactose and
with a pound of flaked oats for a heavier mouthfeel and a sweeter finish.

1 oz vanilla beans were chopped and decocted in 8oz of 100 proof vodka for two weeks (shaking the shit out of it daily) to create a natural extract. The vanilla extract was added upon transfer to the secondary fermenter.
