alright so i'm working on putting together anothe recipe and i'm getting close to having some free time as my last quarter UW comes to a close on the 16th. my celebration brew i wanted to venture out and create my own recipe (kinda) obviously stole ideas from multiple of recipes but i wanted some suggestions and ideas on this batch from the more experience brewers here. i haven't been brewing for too long and have really yet to step out and create my own recipe so here it is let me know what you think , the idea here is for an oaky vanilla stout, suggested changes are more than welcome:
6.0 lbs. Dark malt extract
1 lb. Brown Sugar
3/4 lb. Crystal 50L
1/4 lb. Chocolate malt
1 oz. Northern Brewer bittering hops
Wyeast 1318 London Ale III yeast---suggestions please?
3/4 cup priming sugar
2 Vanilla beans added to secondary--should i use more or less?
***Oak Wood Chips***secondary/primary?--is this a good idea?
thanks in advance.....
