I am now manufacturing my gourmet vanilla for a wholesaler that will take it nationally. It must meet FDA standards and mine does.
tigachu and others with whom I have shared my ratios, I would appreciate it if that recipe stayed private because of the recent expansion of my business.
tigachu, I'm really glad you liked it. I'm also in the process of developing an organic line. I don't know if the results will be as good, but the vodka is pure top shelf with original hints of vanilla. Pm me if you are interested.
scp, would the ratio that I use be sufficient in your opinion? I use quadruple filtered Burnette's vodka, it seems like one of the better "cheap" vodkas, I've used it in mixed drinks and find it pretty good actually, definitely not the cheapest in the store, but nowhere near top shelf. Right now I'm using grade A Mexican beans (never been able to find grade B Mexican).
I ask because I am getting ready to start a new batch. When one batch is ready, I usually start another, so that I have at least 6 months for it to steep.
