Default Bourbon Vanilla Porter

For anyone who has made the Bourbon Vanilla Porter recipe:

The recipe says to use "1.5-2.5 oz/gal of Maker's Mark." It is later mentioned that, if you want to use vanilla extract, start with 2 oz.

Am I to understand that these are fluid ounces or are they dry ounces? Anyone know?

Thanks! I'm not brewing this until the end of July so I was just evaluating my options. I'll probably go with real vanilla beans in the end.

I figured it was fluid ounces, but I wanted to be sure.

Did you use 1.25 lbs of chocolate malt or just 0.5 lbs?
