To use, simply slice the bean open lengthwise and add to your Secondary or Keg. Remove when the Vanilla flavor is at the desired strength. 1-2 beans are fine for a slight Vanilla flavor, 3 or more for an intense Vanilla aroma and flavor. These beans are moist and vacuum-packed, rather than dried.
Note: Vanilla prices skyrocketed in 2016-2017, jumping over 500%. In 2021, prices started dropping but are still much higher than previously. The price of Madagascar, Tahitian, and other varieties of beans is dropping at different rates, with Madagascar being much more expensive than other varieties (as of August 2021). As of August 2021, our vanilla beans are planifolia vanilla from Indonesia, and each package contains 11 beans.
