You could probably use a food dehydrator to get the dandelions dry- I just added all my stuff to the boiling wort.

That sounds tasty, actually. I thought you meant a "gruit" kind of lambic bittered with the greens.

The book Sacred and Herbal Healing Beers has a number of recipes for making dandelion beers, though these seem to focus more on using the leaves than the flowers.

Dandelion wine recipes I've seen have called for 2-3 quarts of dandelion flowers per gallon of wine you plan to produce.

I am brewing a Dandelion ESB recipe from The Hombrewer's Garden this Saturday. Try this one if you like a session beer, about 4% ABV. I made it last spring (2010) with Wyeast Thames Valley II, 9 oz of dandelion blossoms (mostly) and greens (a few). It came out a brilliant gold and very creamy smooth. The yeast is gone, so I'm using Thames Valley I this weekend. The French gave us "Danedelion" - Lion's Tooth, but they also call it "Pissenlit" or "wet the bed." Even after several, I never had a problem. :P

I'm planning a dandelion beer using no hops and just the greens. I haven't found a field near me that has any yet, though the blue bonnets are starting to show up. I wonder how TX blue bonnets would be in a mash...
