Bob, don't chop up the vanilla bean. Split it in half length-wise and use the back of a small knife to scrape out the paste inside. Add that and the scraped pod to the cream/milk/sugar mixture and heat them together. the heated dairy will extract a lot of vanilla flavor from the pod. Then you can just fish out the two pieces of pod and proceed.
3/4 cup of sugar for how much liquid?
