First time making this, bottled as gifts, used mexican vanilla, no beans. Made two batches and got 4 3/4 bottles (I used glass "5ths") Is VERY sweet but excellent tasting.

Very good! My mom often makes this and gives it out at Christmas. It is important to use real vanilla extract and not imitation vanilla.
