What “spirit” do you recommend for making vanilla extract using the Madagascar Bourbon beans. I generally use two ounces of beans for 16 ounces of “spirit”. Do I use bourbon or vodka.

Hi Sydney try using our vanilla extract calculator. This should help you determine how much vanilla you need to make vanilla extract.

Wanting to make vanilla extract as Christmas gifts but when looking at Tahitian vanilla beans I am not sure how many beans to figure the oz packages. I see the ability to purchase by bean quantity but need about 44-50 beans. (Making 6, 8 oz containers. My recipe calls for 6 beans per 8 oz)
