Beginning of November I'm going to brew a robust porter. I'm thinking of soaking two South African vanilla beans,scraped & cut up in a little vodka while the beer ferments. Then strain into the priming solution at bottling time.
I thought that way would give better flavor to the PM brew.

I add 2-3 scraped beans to bourbon or vodka and add that at bottling. Seems to work best. Added them to primary once and got nothing from them.

+1 for making a tincture with vodka. Just bottled a really nice gingerbread stout with 1 cup of vodka, 8 cinnamon sticks (crushed), 3 madagascar vanilla beans and 3 oz. of diced fresh ginger. This was for 10 gallons.

Split, scrape and chop the vanilla beans... add tincture to bottling bucket or keg.
