Transferred this year's batch to keg last night. Made the vanilla tincture with Maker's Mark as well as putting Maker's Mark in the keg (stretching that free handle as far as I can ). Can I just say that the mason jar I used for the tincture smelled friggin awesome!! I'll never use vodka again. Very much looking forward to getting this carbed up in time for Christmas. Used White labs 001 on this batch cause it's what LHBS had in stock, ran a longer than normal time in primary on account of knee surgery (11/12 - 12/21) and it finished out at 1.028 which seems a bit high. Last two times I used that yeast for this beer, I got down to the high teens, low 20's. Oh well, it tastes delicious flat so I have high hopes for the finished product.
