I believe we soaked 8 oz of rose petals in vodka for about a week, then transferred the vodka to the secondary.

Honestly, all I think it did was provide a light red hue to the color of the beer, but we couldn't pinpoint a taste or aroma it provided. Maybe we have to add more rose petals.

If anyone is toying with the idea of using rose water, I'd like to add a word of caution.

I brewed a 5gal saison (OG 1.055, FG 1.004 (yup, .004)) and added 5 tbs dried lavender and 3 tbs rose water to secondary. Mistake. The lavender is perfect, there's a thread here that broke it down (1 tbs/gal for subtle, 2 tbs/gal for prominent in secondary) but 3 tbs of rose water makes the beer taste like perfume. Granted a beer that dry will accentuate anything you add to it, but believe me when I say, you will be debating whether to drink your beer or use it for shampoo.

So far my research has told me that rose water: should never be boiled, and added tsp by tsp to taste at bottling.

Sorry if this repeats anything already said here, but I figure I'd share my all too familiar experience with the dangers of rose water.

Side note, I think someone mentioned the use of rose hips... rose hips actually impart more of a citrus character than floral, delicious but not what you're looking for when you want "rose"

My question is this: will the flavor of that much vodka shine through?? If it does, will it subside with time??

Many thanks!
Any verdict?

Anyone managed to create something with a a nice rose aroma that's still drinkable? Using which process?

I've had mine place in a couple competitions. It is based off a Sierra Nevada beer camp project a few years back. Deep on the interwebs is a PDF of the recipe. It uses rose hips on a pale ale recipe and a delicate rose pedal dry hop. I add a very small amount of rose water to it as well to add a little bitterness.

I made a cream ale and kegged it. Then bought a squirt bottle of rose water and tried to find the right mix of rose water to beer ratio. Turns out there isn't one. So I turned the rest into a peach cream ale using some flavor extract from the brew store. That turned out to be one of my favorite summer chugger beers

There isn't one? Or you just didn't find it...
