I love basil, but cinnamon-basil spice? Is that the same?

Can you just use fresh basil leaves instead? (I have the basic, basil-pesto basil). How did this turn out?

I'd love to implement more fresh herbs into beer (rosemary, sage). Just adding some at the end ought to do it?

Thanks for answering my questions! I've been too intimidated to experiment much yet, but I love cooking and I feel like it could be kind of intuitive once I get started, maybe.

Honestly, you probably won't notice much of a difference using cinnamon-basil. Speaking of which, "cinnamon basil" is a type of basil that has a subtle hint of cinnamon to it. There are tons of weird basil hybrids that you can find in springtime at smaller nurseries, etc., like chocolate-basil, lime-basil, lemon-basil, etc. You can absolutely just use sweet italian basil---in fact, I'd guess that half of the basil i used in the above recipe from from my sweet italian basil bushes. For a bit of spicy character, you can also use thai basil---I think I used some of that too, but you need to be careful because it's strong stuff!

The recipe, IMHO, turned out great, though if you want a lighter beer you can dial down the honey and victory amounts. I'm going to do another one this summer once my basil is in. Can't wait...basilbrau has become a seasonal stape round these parts. Also, you can amend this to be a pale ale, too, if you want. My first beer ever was a basil pale ale and it was awesome.

Thanks! For a pale ale, I should reduce the hops by, maybe about 2 ounces total? (I'm not worried about the varieties, really, because we have a pretty bad selection right now anyway!)

Sounds awesome! I think we'll do this one next.

Yeah, you could knock those FW hops back to 1oz, and get rid of the 8 minute amarillo addition, and end up in the mid 40's for IBU's, perfect for an APA. I'd also, however, omit the LME, knock the honey malt and victory down to 1lb each, and go with about 7lb of pale malt. Bam, APA.

wait...you're in cincy, which is pretty similar to our climate I believe. My basil plants right now are no more than 6" tall with mayb 5 or 6 leaves on them. If you're brewing next weekend, where are you getting the basil? It can get expensive buying it from the store! Or maybe you just got your basil bushes started earlier than us...?

No, my basil looks terrible. But Meijer often carries big bunches of it for only a few bucks, I guess for pesto-making.

How does the final product taste? Big Basil flavor, or is it subtle? What about the aroma?
