Brewers Guidance for Use:
When used as a flavoring agent in beer, vanilla is most often found in winter seasonal beers, where the sweet aroma pairs nicely with other festive spices like cinnamon, allspice, and clove. Vanilla can be added at any of several stages in the brewing process.
Most commonly, Vanilla Bean paste is added either at the end of the boil during the whirlpool stage before wort is transferred for fermentation or post fermentation before packaging.
Vanilla is a flavoring agent derived from the fruit of the orchid Vanilla planifolia, which is native to Mexico, but is now cultivated in tropical regions around the world. Vanilla is the second most expensive spice in the world, after saffron.
The vanilla fruit are commonly called beans, because they resemble bean pods, each about 15 to 30 cm (6 to 12 inches) in length. Each fruit is harvested when ripe and then goes through a lengthy curing process, which can take up to 2 years, although 6 months is more common.
