This includes both the flowers and the greenery from Heather. This herb imparst a pleasing aroma and a smooth bitterness to any beer, and is especially poignant in Scotch-style ales. The flavor is similar to a subtle chamomile and mint blend with just a hint of lavender. This herb pairs especially well with honey.
Directions for Use
Add 2 oz at 5 minutes left in the boil, and up to 6 oz at 5 minutes left in the boil to replace hop bitterness. The longer you boil this herb, the more bitterness/astringency you will get in your beer, so plan accordingly.
You can also make an ethanol tincture to get more aroma and flavor. Simply steep in a clean spirit (like clean vodka) for 5-7 days and add slowly at packaging until the flavor profile is where you want it.
