As strong as Vanilla is, this seemed like a lot of beans for a small amount
of product.   Which led me to wonder, is there a standard percentage of herb
to alchohal/oils when making extracts and etc?   If so, what is it?   Or is
every recipie different?

For those of you who read the original post, would this be a good basic
recipie for other herbs as well?

Can you use dried herbs when making oils and extracts, or should you always
try for fresh?
