Notes
The Flakes I roasted in the oven for 2 hours at 225.

Piloncillo – unrefined brown sugar

The vanilla goes in the whirlpool

For the vanilla bean vodka solution, two vanilla beans are cut in half. then blended in food processor. then into 4oz of vodka. Let the vodka sit for one week.

All the Spices go in secondary:

Mix 1 cup of hot water and all spice, let cool and pour in secondary Stir secondary let sit for 5 day and taste. If you want more Flavor do it exactly the same and let sit for another 5 days

I put the spices in secondary because then you can not over spice it and when you steep them in hot water it will act like it was in the boil.


Read notes in Recipe.

Feed back would be nice

Thanks
