Notes

So this is the reccomended ammount: "For 5 gallons: After primary, slit open 2 vanilla beans. Scrape the insides, chop the pods into quarters, add to secondary fermenter, rack beer onto vanilla. Taste periodically for the correct balance. Rack to bottling bucket and add 1.5-2.5 oz/gal of Maker's Mark (to your taste). " This is what I did: Added 2 vanilla beans and 2 oz of pure vanilla extract for Vanilla flavor. At bottling, added 3 oz of Makers Mark (to 2 gal) to test for flavor balance, and ended up adding one more oz. total.
