Vanilla works well in a lot of the darker beers that have roasted falvors for the vanilla to complement. It's not exactly commonplace, but you can find some commercial beers with vanilla pretty easily. So no, not strange at all jkath!

Boubon vanilla porter sounds wonderfully delicious!

as for vanilla around here...I've never seen it! So Cal has lots of things, but vanilla beer isn't one of them :(

How about brewing a pale ale or IPA?

how about a nice hoppy pilsen style, at about 7 percent alcohol? (why do you think wenceslas is so freakin jolly?)
or a kicked up budweiser style lager? can't make this too easy...

That gets my vote. I like stouts, but prefer pale ales or IPA.

Hmm, a nice everyday pale ale might be nice. I'll have to take inventory before I decide for sure (Although I'm going to rule out buckytom's UBER-Pils suggestion..... Just too big!).

I know that I have right now at least:
5 gallons of belgian trippel
10 gallons of stout (5 kegged/5 bottled)
~5 gallons of Kolsch
?? of brown ale in a keg
?? gallons of belgian brown ale kegged
1/2 a keg of 1919 IPA (a 19 Plato beer that used 19 ounces of hops) 9%ABV
and who knows what's left in the bottles..

WHOO HOO! Party at John's place! :D I've never really brewed beer (I made meade once but that doesn't count) so I'm not sure where to start. I have a lot of equipment that should probably be sanitized so I figure I should start from the beginning. Gotta crawl before you walk, as they say.

Of course Mead counts!! I've got a bunch of that too, and a bronze medla from a national competition, so I guess I'm decent at it.

To really get started, you'd probably be best off taking an inventory of what you have (To determine how to brew and what you can make), then just crank 'er up. It's really so much simpler than a lot of the books make it out to be.

I'll go down to the basement and write up a list of what I have. I'm embarrassed to say it but I don't even know what a few of the things are called! :oops: Maybe a book wouldn't be such a bad idea in my case.
