Notes

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).

Added 2 oz of pure vanilla extract and 3 oz of Makers Mark (to 2 gal). Recommended bourbon @ 2.5 oz / gal.
