Here it is, finishing up fermentation:



And the vodka getting the goodness out of the rose petals:



Hopefully the vodka taste gets masked. I'm still unsure if it'll be too much or not, I'll taste at bottling to see if I wanna add it.

A brew pub in Boston (Boston Beer Works) had one and it was eh for me, I like the heffenwizen idea though.

I don't think you'll have anything to worry about re: the vodka. Vodka doesn't really have flavor beyond "alcohol", which shouldn't stand out in your beer if you're only adding a cup.

I thought the rose aroma and flavor were totally over done, I would not drink a pint of that beer. I would advise caution to avoid that "Grandma’s house." taste.
I made a mead with hibiscus tea and rose water. It smells a little nicer than Grandma's house, but it's not the best drink.

Looks like she's stuck @ 1.026. I racked it to secondary so I can have my primary back, hopefully that'll kick-start it back up. The sample was delicious, the rose wasn't strong at all. Barely noticeable, really.

I'm very interested in your results. Being from Columbus originally, and planning a trip to Pasadena, I want to make a special beer for our Rose Bowl tailgating.

When you say the rose wasn't strong at all, have you already added the tea? Barely noticeable is about what I'm thinking. Enough that you get a hint of it in the aroma. If the name implies that it's made with roses, just a hint will go a long ways when someone tries it, I think.

It was barely noticeable without the tea. If you didn't know there was rose in the boil, you wouldn't be able to notice it. The hydro sample tasted great, and you could tell there was something unusual in it, but I'd be highly impressed if someone could point out it was rose. We'll see what happens after the tea (in whole or part) is added at bottle time.

Good to know. I think that's about what I'm looking for. I look forward to reading your end results!

Any news on this one? One of my brewing partners is also an OSU fan. We went with the Hefeweizen route as well. Did you add the vodka rose tea to the secondary or at bottling? How did it come out?
