I dry hopped in the keg and it was only 4 days on gas until we tapped it so I'm sure it will be better after a few more days. Funny you mentioned the salsa @squeegeethree because I smoked a pork butt and somebody brought some hot @$$ sauce that was cured by a pint of the Milkshake!
After thinking about those vanilla beans for a while, I remembered a friend of mine works at McCormick. Turns out he can get me the exact beans my wife bought for nothing whenever I need them again! The price on those things is what turned me off most about the whole brew but that's no longer a problem it looks.
