10 Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Beans – $7.50 – 75 Cents/Ea Shipped

10 Madagascar Bourbon Planifolia Extract Grade B Vanilla Beans

10 Count Grade B Bourbon Planifolia Vanilla Beans.

You can add this right to your homebrew or soak them in alcohol to make an extract and add that to your homebrew.  I added a few vanilla beans to RiteBrew’s Oatmeal Stout – I split them, scraped the inside and put them inside a sanitized hop bag right in the keg – and it turned out great.  However you end up doing it, you probably want to add these later in the process rather than earlier.  Vigorous primary fermentation could drive off a lot of the flavor.  Add to the keg or to the fermenter after fermentation has settled down.

5/22/15 2 AM Central: These are selling for just $7.50 with free shipping.  That figures to just 75 cents each shipped.  Check the product page for up to the minute price and availability.

10 Gallon Used Whiskey Barrels with Cracked Staves – $125

img_3235

Smaller (5 to 10 gallon) used whiskey barrels can be tough to come by.  Adventures in Homebrewing has used 10 gallon whiskey barrels (with cracked staves) from Sons of Liberty Distillery.  They still hold liquid (see the description) and this saves you $25 vs the standard offering (which is and has been out of stock).

Description: These barrels have slight imperfections and/or minor cracks in some of the staves. These still will hold liquid and are in good condition otherwise. May need to be swelled prior to use to ensure it is liquid tight.
