Default Who's used rosemary?

I am growing my own hops, and I'm beginning to make a few pale ale recipes to showcase these new, fresh, amazingly delicious hops. After getting simple recipes out of the way, I wanted to try something with Rosemary in it. It has such a great, spicy, piney flavor that I think would go nicely in an IPA. I've had an idea for a Thai Pale Ale with lemongrass and basil floating around in my head for awhile, but I'm a bit more interested in rosemary. At least at first.

Who's successfully used rosemary? How much did you use?

Could be good.

I did a basil lemon ale and it actually turned out great. Not as harsh or odd as you would think. Basil lemongrass is a great idea.

I've never used it, but I've had some rosemary beers. A little goes a looooong way, let me tell you.

The brewmaster @ Defiant Brewing Co in NY brews a beer called Rosemary's Baby... its an American Saison brewed with Rosemary. I have rosemary and other herbs growing as well and after having tried this brew... i plan to use rosemary in the next beer in the pipeline.

Thinking it would work great in a Wit, APA, Saison or possibly an IPA or imperial.

Could go for a darker style too. meh, il have to just play around. to the drawing board!

I will be saturday in a saison, also with basil and other herbs.

I haven't decided how much I'm using yet, probably in the 0.5oz range for a 5 gallon brew. But I have heard that a little rosemary goes a long way

never used rosemary, but my gut tells me even 0.5 ounces would be a lot.

I never used Rosemary. She knew what we were getting into when she accepted the cash.
