Take your vanilla beans, make a cut in the middle of each bean (don't cut in half, just make a cut to expose the interior of the bean), submerse the beans in vodka (just enough to cover them but not much more...allow 3 to 8 weeks for complete extraction of vanilla flavor....adding to your beer will depend on your recipe, but most will call for it to be added in the conditioning/aging stage!
