Also, and this might be a stupid question. Is "real vanilla extract" a special type of extract, or is it what I can buy at the store?

How much vodka do you use per bean? And do you ground them up or just soak 'em?

redXstripe, I have been an extract brewer for a while and just discovered how to become an all grain brewer for less than $100. Search "cooler MLT" on here
If you don't feel like doing that right now, download the free trial of http://beersmith.com/ it'll convert it for you.
did you try this out as an Extract?

I'm sold. I'm going to be brewing this up as my next batch. I hope it comes out just as good with a 5 gal conversion.
