comment When do I add spices to spice up a holiday brew?
+1 for the vodka. The only truly awful beer I've ever made was a vanilla orange ale. I just sliced the vanilla bean open and "dry-hopped" it. I'm not sure if it was the white stuff from the orange which is notorious for being nasty or vanilla bean germs that ruined the beer, but I will always soak any non-hop additions in alcohol if they're going into fermenting beer now.
