Notes

I've been waiting a long time to brew this one. Too many silly distractions, like work.
Substituted Weyermann Special W for Special B since the Fermentables drop down menu does not list Special W.
My first venture in to liquid yeast. Made a yeast starter with Wyeast 1318 London Ale III. Decanted and performed 2nd step to bump the cell count to over 600 B. Cooled for floculation and decanted before pitching into 12 gallon fermenter.
After primary, split batch in to two 5 gal glass carboys and added Oak Cubes, Cocoa Nibs and Vanilla Beans, all soaked for 5 days in J.P. Wiser's Dark Ale Style Hopped Whiskey. An ounce each of EKG dry hops, for good measure, and let age for 14 days or more.
