I am ready to take the plunge!
So, is it a 750ml bottle of vodka with 12 beans? Is that the ratio? I want it good but I don't want to waste beans.
What combination are you using?
I use 750ml bottle and add about 20 Grade B vanilla beans, split and scraped before adding to the vodka, then steeped for a minimum of 6 weeks.
For a 750ml bottle I use 4 vanilla beans. Cut 2 beans lengthwise and put them in the vodka. Shake the bottle every day for 1 month, then remove the 1st 2 vanilla beans, cut 2 new ones and put those in the vodka. Shake it every day for another month, and it will be ready to use.
ooooh I have about 40 beans sitting and waiting for me to make my vanilla - I know there is a thread on vanilla somewhere on here - maybe Jan "Queen of the Links" will read this and supply the links for us? LOL!
I've been steeping mine since this original post but haven't used it yet....I can't wait!
