Dried Heather Tips, 2 oz


This includes both the flowers and the greenery from Heather.  This herb imparts 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.

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) and add slowly at packaging until the flavor profile is where you want
