Well, I just kegged an IPA I made with juniper berries. And not to toot my own horn (okay, a little), it is FREAKING awesome. For a 5gal batch I used 9# 2-row, 3.5# rye, and .75# crystal 40. I used an ounce of dried juniper berries (smashed) at the tail end of the boil. It's great. The berries seem to make it kind of juicy. Not at all what I was picturing. It's definitely not gin-like by any stretch of the imagination. And at 7.7%, I suspect it will be the cause of all my hangovers for the next week or so. Delicious.
