Notes

Add Vanilla Extract at end of Boil - 5 mins before flameout.

Pecans - Roast in oven @ 180 degrees for 10 minutes or until desired roastiness. Coarsely chop and let cool completely. Add to Mash.

Allow for a longer sparge as mash bed can be sticky with darker beers.

In terms of fermentation, you can treat this as you would any ale. Start cool, at about 64°F (18°C), to inhibit diacetyl production and prevent the production of fusel alcohols. After 72 hours or so, let the temperature rise by a few degrees (to 68°F/20°C) is good), and hold it there for the rest of fermentation.
