Thanks!!! this might be exactly what I was looking for... I'll pick it up this week. Do you know any other books on the history of brewing?

SHAMELESS PLUG: http://www.landofamberwaters.com/ <-- This is a great book if you're in or around the Midwest.

Here is more info on the Gruit Ale thing, there is a bunch of good info on the site about what different bittering agents there are: Griut Ale.

There is a fairly popular Heather Beer out there, Made by These Guys, I see it at quite a few beer stores.

Cheers

The Frederick Brewing company once had "Hempen Ale" (favoured by Bill Clinton, seriously) that contained a ton of hemp seeds (persumably during the mash?). They've pulled the ale since then, mainly because even THEY admit it did nothing to the beer and only sold because it was "gimmicky".

The only other "use" for hemp in beer is "dry hemping". Boiling does very little since THC isn't water-soluable - dry hemping on the other hand extracts the THC because it is alcohol-soluable.

It takes a LOT of pot to get any kind of effect from it and it still illegal.

If you're interested in some "history" on the subject read http://www.onr.com/user/liberty/Mari...eer/MBeer.html

Hum, sorry to bring up an ancient topic, but hey, at least I got here via search.

All the threads talk about beer, but I'm a mazer. I've got a mead that's 15% abv and still going, and I have heard of ones that are stronger still. Given that the cannabinoids are alcohol soluble, the higher the proof, the more effective the extraction, yeah?

Granted, I still probably wouldn't put any in unless I moved to a state or country with decriminalized growing, else it'd be a rather spendy mead no matter what. I mean, with my sources, 20 pounds of honey costs the same as, oh, a couple-few thin joints.

Since I have read nothing here on the subject...I know a guy who spent too much time in N. cal with growers...
They make keef with water, silk screen bags and all the waste products...it is sort of like hash...
At some point they stopped and there was lots of the 'water' left over...
So this guy made 5 gal of ale with the left over water...he also knows how to brew...
I had a couple...It was like a SNPA with a pot flavor...And you got high too...P.S. ...I have a script for pot...

Slightly off topic, and I tried searching.

In the Dominican Republic, there is an "herbal viagra" called mamajuana, basically a bunch of roots and sticks and leaves and who knows what that you soak rum in. Has anyone heard of using mamajuana in beer making?

This is possibly my most favorite post ever. First off, that is a great idea. At least until I though what it must have smelled like during the boil. Second off, what is this script you speak of?

Another one to check out is the following:

Sacred & Herbal Healing Beers

I've paged through it a bit at the store and it is full of info/recipes about brewing with various plants/herbs.
