Is this recipe typically a quick turn around or does it require a bit of aging?
How old is it? This beer needs at least 6 weeks.

It will be 6 weeks old Friday 10/25. In an odd turn of events, I tried another today and it tasted quite a bit better already, just after another 24 hours. I am going to indulge in it tonight because...well...it's Thursday. I have a pretty good feeling this will improve within the next week or two. Another issue could have been the amount of spices I used. I used pumpkin pie spice so it's a bit different from the original recipe.

How did you "rack over the vanilla?"

Also - would you mind adding at what times you added the ingredients to the boil? I have not brewed in a year and am a bit rusty on when to add ingredients to a boil.

Thanks!

Spices are added at flameout. When the boil is complete, turn off the heat, and stir them in.

As far as the vanilla goes, when you transfer the beer to a secondary fermenter, add the vanilla to the fermenter before siphoning in the beer. If you don't do a secondary, but keg your beer, do this in the keg. If you don't secondary, and bottle, do this in your bottling bucket.
