    Vanilla Options

    we have used chopped up whole beans in the past, cold side with great results in stouts, takes a few days.
    looking for another option....

    anyone have thoughts about the paste an/or powdered vanilla?

    little different this time around, got 5 bbl or kettle sour that we want to do a little creamsicle thingee with, vanilla and orange.
    need something to come through and "cream" things up with being artificial tasting or overpowering.

    We use double fold vanilla extract with great success in many different beers. 2 ounces per bbl gives good vanilla flavor. 3 ounces per bbl gives a vanilla forward flavor.

    Check out Savory Spice shop.

    I use this in a orange creamsicle. Cream ale with orange and vanilla served on nitro. Pretty sure it’s around 35ml / keg.

    When you say 35ml/keg, are you talking sixtel, quarter or half barrel?

    What was your bean/bbl ratio for a stout?

    i've used 28 beans, roughly 1/4# i believe, in bright tank to impart a good vanilla taste to robust stouts.
    also have had luck with 4 beans per keg.
    kinda depends on base beer and what you're trying to achieve.
    i'll report back after i try some vanilla (product or beans) in this sour...

    Vanilla options

    Nielson Massey has a line of vanilla style purees and extracts. I used a one gallon jug of their Bourbon vanilla bean paste/puree in a 15 bbl batch and had a great flavor and perfect aroma for a stout.
