My wife loves a good vanilla cream ale so I got the cream ale kit. Any suggestions to make it a vanilla cream?
This particular kit only has primary fermentation for 2ish weeks and then bottle.
It was recommended to me to add one vanilla bean, cut in half, during secondary. This kit doesn’t really need a secondary though. Is that sufficient or are there other suggestions?
Also, when you do add things like vanilla beans…how much should you worry about contamination or do you just think that there is enough alcohol in the carboy to keep it ok?
