Default Rose Hips

I'm planning on a full strength Saison with the blended cakes from my WYLP65/WY3711 split. I'm gonna add rose hips for flavor and such. I want it to be very noticeable, but don't have much experience with the 'hips. any suggestions on how many ounces for a 5 gallon batch?

Default Rose hips

I've seen references to use 2 ounces per 5 gallons and boil for 60-mins, but have not done that for a beer yet.

I have used 4 oz in 6 gallons of mead by soaking them in 3 cups of water for a few days, and adding this tea the primary. Produced a nice tartness to the mead. 4 oz would probably be too strong for a beer... so the 2 oz recommendation I read seems like a good starting point. Add less to be on the safe side.

I haven't gotten good flavor out of them. Mine came dried, but I think you should crack them up even more than they are (if yours are dried) and toss them in at the 15-10m mark for best luck. I may not have boiled them long enough and I think they probably needed to be cracked a little finer.

thanks for the replies! this should be a uvula punching Saison. if it needs more rose hips, I'll "dry hip" in a secondary.

Hello, I use rose hips in one of my xmass beers, I use 1 oz cracked, remove the hair and seeds, add at 15 min left in the boil.

This beer has cinnamon, all spice, nutmeg, orange peels, in it too, so its kinda hard for me to suggest to you exactly how much to use, I cut the rose hips in 1/2 on this, as i felt that 1 oz was just a bit to much with everything else going on in this brew.

For a pronounced rose hp flavor, I would recommend anywhere from 1oz to 2oz at 15 min left in the boil, I think 2 oz will be very up front in your beer, this is my best guess.

I hope this helped, Please let me know how it turns out.

Cheers

brewing the Rose Hip Saison right now. just added 2 oz dried Rose Hips at the 15 min mark. if it needs more, there's always bulk age! smells great, by the way!
