Default Bubble Nag Champa through a beer?

I'm an incense fan, and I love Nag Champa. I can't get enough of it.

So, how can I infuse some of that Nag Champa aroma into my IPA?

I wonder what negative implications, if any, there would be if you soaked a stick just like you would vanilla beans? Interesting idea, passedpawn

Do you have a smoker? Some grains in a mesh strainer or colander should impart something. Milled grains would probably infuse more flavor, especially since you aren't going to put all of the grains in the smoker.

I have no idea but I do agree, I love Nag Champa and feel like a hippy when I have it going on at home.

You're off your rocker PP. Nag Champa is Sandalwood, frangipani, and some tree resin that is psychoactive, at least acording to Wikipedia. Sounds like an interesting brew...

I do have a smoker. I didn't even think of smoking the grains. I'm afraid to affect the smoker and end up with my next brisket smelling like incense. But maybe I can make some sort of makeshift with a large box and a screen. Good idea!

Yea that's where I'd start. I'm not sure how you'd work with powder on a stick. And you'd have to do some research on possible effects of plumeria and sandalwood(might not want to make something that will make you trip sack or die. Or maybe lol).

Assuming all is a go however, id start with trying to infuse it steeping, or over time like you would infuse liquors. Maybe adding that "tea" to your boil. I don't know what effects on the fermentation it would have but

Say you mashed and sparged to get 3 G, do your bittering additions, then at 30 you add ~3 G nag champa tea, then continue with your boil.

Would you have created a new water profile that would adversely affect the beer? Going that route you may have to alter your hops a bit as well.

Interesting though. Just spitting out some thoughts

Has anyone tried Plumeria in beer? I have tons of those flowers on my property & they smell very nice.

Was considering adding some to a saison.
