A multiple gold medal winner at the Colorado State Fair, this decadent vanilla porter
is sure to raise eyebrows. Most vanilla beer
recipes use one or two vanilla beans; this
one uses five and has the base recipe to
back them up. A rich, smooth porter with
hints of rum and molasses behind a coffee-
like roasted character, then infused with
fragarant vanilla. The beans used in this kit
are 100% Madagascar bourbon beans that provide deep, sweet flavor. The final pint emanates a heady vanilla perfume and makes for both a wonderful after-dinner drink or the ultimate ice cream float.

  • Urca Vanilla Bean Blend – cut into approximately 1

    /2" pieces and add to secondary fermenter

    one week before bottling day
