Let us know if you get a lot of vanilla flavor/characteristics in this beer. I'm curious as to how it will hold up in a 10 minute boil. I've usually seen people add it to a secondary or at kegging/bottling.

If there is not any vanilla flavor from adding it at 10 minutes would you recommend adding a little more in secondary or bottling? I do want some vanilla flavor in the taste

I have used vanilla in the secondary with good results. What I was looking for was a subtle vanilla flavor to balance the chocolate/coffee flavors in my stout. If you add it at bottling time it will be a little more upfront and noticeable. So I guess it depends on what you want the vanilla to do.
