needed extra time to age, but it was good!
I bought the extract kit. Used dry yeast. I followed instructions, except added vanilla beans to primary after fermentation completed. This was my fault, but i bottled about 2/3 of this batch in mickeys 12oz big mouth bottles. These took about a month and a half to be drinkable. A little roasty but still good. I did bottle some of the brew in 16.9oz glass amber bottles as well as one 6 pack of standard 12oz amber bottles. The amber bottles tasted fantastic and were much smoother without the roasty flavor. It was my mistake to use those bottles, and it will not stop me from doing this kit again. I also used the alcohol boost and with the yeast it ran me $25, but that is still good considering other kits of just ingredients can cost double.
