Weekend Project #1

I’ve a vodka bottle, the contents of which, I’ve absolutely no intention of drinking.

However, a small amount of the contents of the vodka bottle, along with the ingredients in this photo, combined in the right way and at the right time, will create five glorious gallons of the most spectacular, dark, vanilla-scented Porter one’s palate has ever encountered…

Assorted grains, barley, hops, muslin hop & grain socks, some
liquid malt extract, five vanilla beans, and some brewer’s yeast.

The worst part will be waiting for the yeast to do its job and convert all that sugar into a more useful compound.
