I do this for Barley wine and RIS. Tommorow I am brewing a Vanilla Bean Oatmeal Stout so I will soak my beans in Captain morgan until fermentation is complete and them add the beans and Captain morgan to the Secondary. Becareful a little Booze goes a long ways One or two shots of liquor should surfice

I guess it depends on what kind of booze you are adding. I use 375ml which is a half a bottle of Jim Beam Black per 5 gallons of porter and it is perfectly balanced with the 2 vanilla beans and the porter.cbbrown40 wrote:Becareful a little Booze goes a long ways One or two shots of liquor should surfice

It tasted terrible at first, gave it a thin mouthfeel, and little carbonation. The flavors didn't come together until about 6 months of aging, then it was okay. It really was GOOD after about 8 months, and it seemed like the mouthfeel improved also.
Just my experience though.
