hops, using wild hops

Postby Byron » Sat Aug 14, 2004 6:15 pm

Has anyone ever used wild hops to brew with? Not sure how to tell what the bittering units would be so thought about just using as a finishing hop. Would appreciate any input.

Home grown hopping...

Yup... I've used whole, fresh off the vine uncured hops as well as ones I cured. Since the test for AA% is a bit of an investment, I'd stick to using them as flavor and aroma additions.

Make your next beer (or spirit) a local one!!!!
