Seeds of Paradise, 1 oz
1 oz package of whole Seeds of Paradise (Aframomum melegueta)
Use Seeds of Paradise (also called Grains of Paradise) to add a unique and spicy-hot flavor to your beer, with subtle notes of ginger. They add a flavor very similar to Red Peppercorns. Commonly used in Belgian Quads, and any beer style that you want to add a lightly pleasant pepper-spice characteristic.
Directions for Use
Add about a 1/4 teaspoon to a tablespoon per 5 gallons. Crush first to release flavor and aroma and add at the end of the boil, 10 minutes or less. Flavors can also be extracted using a tincture. Crush first and add 1 oz Seeds of Paradise to a clean, neutral spirit and allow 5 - 7 days for extraction. Add finished tincture at packaging, either in the bottling bucket or the keg, to taste.
