Thanks to all the suggestions on CC about buying vanilla beans from Vanilla Products USA, I bought some and spent the weekend chopping beans and making some bottles of extract. Smells so good in here!!
I've been reading a lot of different opinions on how long the extract needs to brew before you can actually use it. Seen a lot of opinions that you can start using it at one month, and others suggesting waiting up to one year. I'm sure that the extract wont taste as good as one month as it will at one year, but I also don't want to wait one year to use this!
For those of you that make your own extract, when do you usually start using it? How long should I force myself to wait?
