What makes homemade vanilla extract so much better than "store bought"? First, you have control over the quality and type of vanilla used in the extract. Using premium grade vanilla beans will provide significantly better flavor and aroma than commercially produced extracts.

Making vanilla extract is fun and simple with our Homemade Vanilla Extract Infusion Kit!


Slice each bean once long-ways and place in bottle. (If it helps to cut them into smaller, tootsie roll-sized pieces so they fit in the bottle more easily, go for it). Pour one cup of vodka, rum or alcohol of your choice (no cheating now -- the whole cup needs to go into the bottle). Make sure vanilla beans are completely submerged. Shake once or twice a week - for best results, shimmy to the beat of "Rock Lobster" by the B52's. Wait about 8 weeks (plenty of time to research oodles of scrumptious vanilla recipes). Presto, your alcohol has turned into delicious vanilla! Store it at room temp and out of direct sunlight, and you can enjoy this puppy til' the last drop.

  1. vanilla kit

    by Iris Buchanan on Apr 21, 2014

    Had enough vanilla beans for 2 bottles, shake everyday, I still have another month before I can add it to any recipes. my order came very fast. I will order again from this company. good quality.
  2. Delicious!

    by Laura Abels on Apr 20, 2014

    No doubt this is a fun and delicious item. You can definitely find less expensive vanilla but the novelty is in creating it yourself. The Ugandan vanilla is absolutely delicious. My only complaint is that the bottle is very tall and doesn't fit in any of my cabinets so it has to sit out on the kitchen counter all the time; I would prefer a shorter container. I would definitely purchase this item again and it would make a fantastic gift.
  3. Waiting

    by Alison Gianakas on Apr 16, 2014

    I got my infusion kit and I have added the vodka. Now comes the hard part, waiting the proper amount of time for the vanilla to be ready. The beans smelled great and were very fresh!
  4. Attractive bottle and label!

    by Pamela Grant on Apr 12, 2014

    I thought this item was worth the price with vanilla beans included. Nice, attractive item to start my own homemade vanilla! I like the label and affordability. Thanks!
  5. Vanilla Extract Infusion Kit

    by Barbara Faucette on Apr 10, 2014

    I've just taken the first step of making vanilla extract, and I'm excited about it. How the journey ends, only time will tell! (Two to Eight months - I'm told, the longer the better.)
  6. Nice, fresh-smelling beans

    by Patti Yarrington on Apr 9, 2014

    I was happy with the quality of these beans, and the bottle. I will certainly be ordering more of these for gifts.
  7. Great kit!

    by Jeff Wilson on Apr 9, 2014

    Got the kit and followed the simple directions. After a couple of weeks, my extract is coming along nicely. The smell is just wonderful!
    The bottle is perfect for its intended purpose and fits the beans nicely.
    The Mexican vanilla beans were a good choice, I think.

    by Klare Campbell on Mar 23, 2014

    Haven't had much time to use it, but I believe it is going to be very satisfactory.
  14. Love it!

    by Paula Daily on Mar 22, 2014

    This is the second purchase I have made with Beanilla! First one was for myself and then had to buy 4 more for friend and family!
  15. Homemade Vanilla Extract Infusion Kit

    by George Gilliam on Mar 21, 2014

    Everything arrived in tact and on time.
  16. No more grocery extract for me!

    by David Rievley on Mar 20, 2014

    I use a lot of extracts, but can't wait to use my own. Beanilla has done all the hard work for me. Thank you!
  17. Nice Gift

    by Joann Lowry on Mar 20, 2014

    I cannot comment on the finished product yet, but I am pleased with the quality and packaging that make a nice gift to give. Shipping was quick and I have no reason not to purchase more items in the future.
  18. Wishing it were ready already

    by Lily Webster on Mar 20, 2014

    This kit is amazing for the price. You get it all for less than you would pay for the price of the beans in stores and you get the bottle too. I only wish you could get a mixture of beans instead of all the same type. I wanted to wait to review this until I had a chance to use my extract but since I was eager to review my order and you can't leave one space blank I can't say if I'll be pleased with the results (although I'm sure I will be ) I can say that it is an affordable product with great value and superbly packaged. I love that the label gives you a space to put the day it was made and it also has printing on the bottle of what beans are found inside. Also- I can't pick it up to shake it without hearing "rock lobster" and subsequently shaking to the beat. Once again very happy with my order.

  21. As always, very happy customer

    by william kemp on Mar 14, 2014

    Summary says it all. Another perfect transaction with Beanilla. Not sure how I could break down each category, one better than the other. Each was perfectly executed. Always surprised at how quickly I receive the order. Thank you very much.
  22. Started three bottles-

    by Mary Lou Johnson on Mar 14, 2014

    I can't wait to try it in 6 more weeks! I made some for my daughters and me. I love the idea of making my own vanilla without the additives in store bought vanilla! The bottles are really cute and reusable for future batches!

  25. Vanilla Extract Infusion Kit

    by Linda Senn on Mar 9, 2014

    I ordered the Vanilla Extract Infusion Kits last year and gave them as gifts to my family members and they loved it. I ordered more for Mother's Day gifts. It's alot of fun to make it and fun to give it as a gift. It makes a huge difference in my baking. Packaging, quality and the value is perfect.

    by Pamela Suratt on Mar 7, 2014

  34. Ordering from Beanilla

    by Julie Johansen on Feb 12, 2014

    easy, user-friendly website offers various products to tease and entice exploration of the world of beans . . . phone calls to staff are expertly handled (read: no snooty attitudes) . . . order arrived within a couple of days (my order to sent Iowa arrived a day after my order sent to California) . . . price is easy on the pocketbook . . . i have recommended Beannilla to all of my foodie friends and Mother Earth aficionados - I have Indian Bean Vanilla Extract and Kahlua made with Ugandan beans in my cupboard, Mexican Bean Vanilla Extract infusing with my California family and Tahitian Bean Vanilla Extract infusing in DC . . . coast to coast, we are all impressed with Beanilla
  35. Top Shelf

    by H. David Todd on Feb 9, 2014

    Excellent product & service, will use Beanilla again & again & again
  36. Nice beans I expected semidry beans.

    by Sam Poles on Feb 9, 2014

    I started the infusion process, it has been two weeks and looks and smells good.
  37. Madagascar

    by Bradly Norwood on Feb 7, 2014

    A friend had gotten one of these kits for a Christmas gift years ago, and I had been wanting one ever since. The idea of perpetual vanilla is pretty cool. Looked great, beans were nice and moist, filled with vodka, and we will see in a few months how the vanilla turns out. Darkening nicely.
  38. Can't wait to try it

    by Edd Twigg on Feb 5, 2014

    Bottle was a little hard to open at first. Until I got the hang of it. I can't wait to taste the first of many batches.
  39. Kit

    by Joanne Ranch on Feb 3, 2014

    Packaged well and the beans were very fresh! It was fun doing this with my daughter.
  40. Fun to make, hard to wait 6 more weeks!

    by HelenAnn Bower on Feb 3, 2014

    The vanilla beans are incredibly soft and pliable, nothing like the dried up ones purchased at the grocery store! Gave some as gifts, and the recipients have loved them, too. Great service from you re packaging and quickness of mailing. Will be back!
  41. 100% satisfaction

    by Mary Ellen Coleman on Feb 3, 2014

    I was amazed at how quickly my kit arrived! Within two days of learning about Beanilla from The Wednesday Chef blog, I was on my way to making my own vanilla extract. It was easy and took little time to prepare. The kit is high quality and the instructions are well-written and illustrated. I even learned about the different kinds of vanilla beans. I can't wait to sample the finished product!
  42. So easy!

    by MYRA GUIDENG on Jan 31, 2014

    I just can't wait for my extract to be ready. I chose the Mexican variety for this and I think I'm going to love it!
  43. Perfect Gift!

    by Lindsey Ryder on Jan 30, 2014

    I ordered the Vanilla Extract Infusion Kit for a friend who has a cake company. Uniquely different, she was thrilled to get the kit. Well packaged for shipping, great labelling & aroma packed vanillas beans. I ordered a kit for myself. She's using rum & I'll do vodka, then we'll compare!
  44. Nice Kit for the Price

    by Trudi Giacomo on Jan 30, 2014

    Easy to follow instructions, can't wait to see the finished product. 4 stars for quality since it's waiting and see.
  45. Infusion Kit

    by Cynthia Wolbert Green on Jan 29, 2014

    I like the changes in labeling and the bottle itself for the infusion kit, The bottle is wrapped tightly so as not to break in transport I really like the infusion kits because it permits me to try a vanilla from a different country each time I order. Many thanks!
  46. Outstanding!

    by Brenton Stringfellow on Jan 27, 2014

    The title says it all!
  47. Totally Awesome, I love the kits

    by Marilyn Moore on Jan 24, 2014

    I have to say that without Reid Warber helping me with a mistake that I made, I would not have gotten my order before Christmas. Mr. Warber was so patient and so understanding in helping me get through my order. I would recommend your company to everybody. The gifts were a huge hit. Thank you so much for everything. I will order more in the future.

  48. So far awesome!

    by Paula Daily on Jan 20, 2014

  49. Love it

    by Nichole Batty on Jan 20, 2014

    I have purchased 5 bottles. I have been so happy with this product. Thanks.
  50. Love it!

    by Susan Friedman on Jan 20, 2014

    I have been making vanilla for years using a vodka bottle and pouring from that into a larger vanilla bottle than this one. I love using this and it's much easier to make for gifts!
