Today I bottled batch #12 - the Special Vanilla Porter. It tasted pretty good at bottling time. I was able to fill 48 12oz bottles. Final Gravity was about 1.018. Puts this one at about 5.5-5.7% ABV. Ready to drink in about 2 weeks.

What is so special about this Vanilla Porter, you ask? Well, I think that any vanilla porter should be considered special. But this one used some high dollar vanilla beans from the whole foods. I splurged, but I found it to be worth it. The beer has a nice clean vanilla taste, but it doesn't overpower the porter at all. Very nice.
