I wanted to bring some delicious BVIP to the Super Bowl party. And just like the Falcons, everything looked great until the last minute when it all fell apart. So last week, let’s call it the start of the fermentation fourth quarter, the beer was going into the keg, and I was looking at the siphon tube, and I was thinking, “that color looks a bit light” …
Basically I took my ingredient list to the LHBS, and he measured everything out. I can only assume he mis-read my crappy handwriting, or he got something wrong. The result is not a Porter, or even an imperial Porter.
OK it’s still freaking delicious though. Rich mouthfeel, and the vanilla finish is like an ice cream float.
Any thoughts as to what substitution(s) ended up being made???
