Default Leap year mead

My first batch of leap year mead is fermenting away and Im thinking about the secondary already I was wondering if anyone ever put raspberries in with the vanilla beans. And should I cut and scrap the beans or leave them whole. Thanks for any comments

Typically, I split the bean length-wise, cut them into 1" segments, and then toss them into the carboy.

Personally, if you are going to call it a leap year mead as part of our group brew, then I think you need to stick to the recipe. But if you want to try out your own raspberry/vanilla mead, by all means go for it. But the LYM is a specific recipe the group put together and all started on the leap day last February.
