Has anyone tried smoking hops and adding them either to the boil or dry hopping? A friend of mine is really into smoked meats and we got talking about smoked hops in beer. I've never heard of it being done. I'm not even sure what style of beer this type of hopping would pair well with. I believe we would want to cold smoke them?
Just looking for thoughts or feedback. I never said it was a good idea, just an idea lol
I'd smoke some 2 row instead. Or as an experiment, you could use some home-smoked 2 row in the base beer, then after primary, split the batch and dry-hop half with normal hops. Dry-hop the other half with cold-smoked hops.
