After Primary Fermentation I added the vanilla flavored vodka to the secondary.
Do you add the vanilla during the primary or during the secondary? Also, how long do you soak the vanilla and vodka for prior to adding it?
EDIT: I read more carefully - now I understand. The vanilla vodka goes in the secondary, and it soaks from the time of primary until you move the beer to secondary
So my new question is: Do you add the vodka + beans to secondary, or just the strained vodka?
I love vanilla, and I'll be brewing this in just a few days... I'm using 1056 as it is the best sub I have access too. Otherwise, it'll the be same. I'm excited!
