Default Chamomile - How to add

I am making a belgian white this weekend and was thinking of adding chamomile to it. I had a beer that i found locally called Dinky Wheat, which is a white with chamomile in it, and it was pretty interesting. I was thinking of steeping the chamomile in a french press and adding it at bottling, but i dont know if that will do what i want. I am looking for someone who has had some experience with this. I think this will pan out to a tasty experiment.

I made a beer with chamomile. It has a very distinctive taste. I like it. Here's some info with pics. I added at 60 min. You might think the boil would drive off the chamomile flavor, but it is strong with this beer.

I added my Chamomile into my Wit with the Coriander and ORange peel, i.e : 10 mins from flame out.

Wow I forgot about this thread. The beer came out great. A lot darker, more of a brown than a white. It was in the primary for 1 month and then bottled for one month before it was any good. I ended up using 1oz of chamomile, full flowers not the tea stuff, for the full 60 min boil. It is a great *1 beer before bed* type as the chamomile really hits ya.
