    I recently brewed an American Honey Ale from a kit. I replaced the aroma hops supplied in the
    kit with a healthy bunch of yarrow, chamomile and rose hips. I also dry hopped with Yarrow,

    I looked around a year or so ago for information on relative bitterness of various spices &

    All good suggestions. When I try to chase down my own off-flavors, I usually visit Palmer's
    guide to off-flavors and run down the list. Usually, one or two items will jump out to me, and

    to worry...
