Default Adding Maple Extract to Bottling Bucket - How much?

I'm making a Vanilla Maple Porter and have 4 fl. oz. of maple extract I want to put in the bottling bucket of my 5 gallon batch.

I'm trying to find if anyone knows how much I should use and how it would affect the priming of the bottles?

I will be using this:
http://www.amazon.com/Maple-Extract-4-oz/dp/B0002PHEDO

FWIW I added two scraped/chopped Madagascar vanilla beans and soaked in a bit of vodka to sanitize.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks all

-Josh

It shouldn't impact the priming "Ingredients: water, alcohol, pure maple syrup concentrate, caramel color."

As for the amount, "to taste" is the best advice for any extract. Take a few measured samples of the beer, add different amounts of the extract. Pick your favorite ratio, and then scale up to the whole batch.

Good luck!

I recommend you actually prime the brew with maple syrup as well, for more maple flavor. 7-8 ounces would work nicely
