I would not consider it extremely huge. To me it would be a big beer, but I don't think any gravity below 100 could be extreme.

I agree. Not huge at all. BJCP guidelines put FES's at 1.056-1.075, so you're right on target.

Double your fermentables, then it will be huge, lol. I've only used vanilla beans, so can't comment on extract, but read some ppl like it.looks like a good recipe.

Vanilla extract doesn't need to ferment or anything, and a little bit goes a long way... I'd think about adding it at bottling time, so you can add a bit, taste, add more if needed, etc...

Looks fine. It's going to be quite roasty. One suggestion- cut the cascade. Citrus and acrid bitter roastiness are an unpleasant combination; just try putting grapefruit juice in your coffee. Stick to something like Willamette, or bitter with Nugget, and flavor with Willamette. Have fun brewing.

You can just add it to the fermenter without pasteurizing it. It's 70 proof. Make sure you use vanilla extract and not imitation vanilla extract.
