Thanks for the response.
How much vanilla extract would you suggest? Should I dump it into the primary or mix into the bottling bucket?

I am brewing this up next week.
My only question is about the vodka and vanilla beans.
How much vodka do you use to soak the vanilla beans, and how long do you soak them for?

Thanks in advance.
