Notes

I put the vanilla beans in the secondary for 5 days with the cacoa nibs. try to get organic and make a tincture with vodka for a couple days to kill what could be on the beans. split the beans down the middle to open them. start your fermentation around 63-65 degrees for 3 days then ramp up to 70 for the rest of the fermentation.

This beer took 4th in a BJCP judged event out of 26 for the russian imperial stout style.

I didnt put cacao nibs or vanilla beans in the irish ale yeast beer (in secondary) the irish ale yeast that i used turned out really well, the american ale yeast i added the chocolate and vanilla beans, good mouthfeel....
