I have done one vanilla stout using real vanilla extract at flame out and was not happy with the result. This time I plan to scrape and soak 5 vanilla beans in vodka. My question is, should I add the vanilla when pitching the yeast, after primary fermentation is complete, or in the bottling bucket? I strain my wort from kettle to fermenter so adding at flameout would likely do little good, and I do not routinely secondary.
