If you have a vacuum sealer I would recommend buying a full pound at once. pound
I ordered from them back in late Oct 2012. I was going to make vanilla extract for Christmas gifts. It wasn't quite enough time to get whole beans to release their flavor, but the beans I split did. The extract is amazing, far FAR better than store bought.
If I remember correctly 10 beans should be enough to use in a full fifth of vodka. Also, make sure you buy the cheapest vodka you can find...the alcohol bakes out during cooking!
When making Kahlua I always add the alcohol (everclear) once the mixure has cooled down, you shouldn't add it hot or even warm....

I have no idea. Every recipe I read called for vodka. Most grocery store extract is around 30-40% so I would imagine that vodka definitely makes a more comparable result. If you use Everclear you may need to adjust each recipe for the higher concentration.
I'm sticking with vodka for more than one reason...it was also cheaper than Everclear. 750ml of the bottom shelf stuff was $6 on sale...750ml of Everclear was $16. To make the vodka hit 190 proof, you need 2.375 more booze (190/80), so it has an effective price of $14.25 (190/80 * $6).
