Home Made Vanilla Extract Update/Results
After 4 months of waiting, I taste tested it compared to one of the small supermarket bottles of extract. I measured a ½ teaspoon of the extract and tossed it into my mouth, swished it around and holding it for a ½ minute getting a good taste of it and rinsed. I then did the same thing with the homemade extract.
Honestly, as much as I tried, I could not tell the difference!
As you can see looking through the bottle it appears a little cloudy with fine particulates. The particulates do settle to the bottom and on the beans but the slightest movement stirs it up. I plan to use a coffee filter and filter the extract when I fill a smaller bottle.

After 4 months it’s ready to bake with.
