    I got my beans today and plan to make my own extract. I've seen recipes using absolute vodka, regular vodka and brandy.

    what's the difference and what's the best?

    Vodka, I think is the best. A Russian Vodka. Chris

    I was told to use the cheapest vodka I could find at the ABC store, so that's what I got - the cheapest! It has turned out fine. I need to get another bottle to get some more started.

    You would'll see a big difference if you bump up to a better vodka. Rose
