vanilla extract and vanilla sugar

Post by Lrus007 »

is oct 31st. lets make a witches brew.
first off spent a mint on 1/2 lb each of grade A and grade B
madagascar bourbon vanilla beans.
1.JPG
then beans everclear and a brown jug.
2.JPG
took and dropped beans into jug.
112 grade A and 300 grade B i counted as i added.
that is counting ones i saved for the sugar.
into the jug went 1/2 cup of wild turkey for bourbon flavor.
then everclear mixed 50/50 with water to make 100 proof.
14 and 1/3 cups to fill to the top. now shake every so often
will take 12-18 months. closer to the 18 because i did whole
beans vs splitting them.

nice!

their probably kooks out there could taste it and know if you split the beans or not...
the intolerance of the old order is emerging from the rosy mist in which it has hitherto been obscured.
