yes, split it and scrape it...I usually drop the scrapings and bean parts into a shot of vodka and let it soak for a minute or two, then chuck it all in...

I just put mine into a coffee grinder before dumping my seasonings into the must. I figure the flavors will extract faster if the pieces are smaller. The foam is leaving a ring of seasoning specks at the top. xD
