A minimum of 3 weeks...maximum of 8 weeks. The longer you wait the more intense the vanilla flavor will be.

2 row, you will find very few recipes with 6 row because it has a 1 to 2% less yield in extracted sugars.

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!

If I'm kegging can I just drop the whole beans and vodka right into the keg? Or do you strain out the beans and only drop in the vodka itself?
