Notes

Mash: Add Chocolate malt in last 15 min of mash.

Vanilla bean: While brewing slice bean in half lengthwise. Scrape seeds (Black paste inside bean) with a butter knife and smear into the bottom of a shot glass. Fill glass with bourbon then cover with plastic wrap. place somewhere dark and cool until fermentation slows.
If kegging dump paste into a fine mesh bag to keep larger chunks contained. Drop bag and bourbon into keg and fill.
If bottling wait until fermentation slows then dump paste and bourbon directly into fermentor loose.
In both cases let sit 2 weeks before touching then consume.

This beer will go faster than you think. 40L went in an evening at a large family gathering my 3 other taps were not touched that night.
