Hemp, the wonder plant (Male plants, not female). I wanted to see what kind of flavors hemp would impart in beer. Hemp has oils in it much like a hop.
I used EdWort's haus pale ale recipe which turns out consistent every time so I thought it would be a good recipe to find out what flavor hemp imparts.
I bottled it last night and it's very interesting. What seems to have happened is the mild hoppy/spicey/fruity/floral flavor in this beer was flattened out.
The oil from the hemp did not bitter the beer at all, which I though may be a possibility. I did .25oz of hemp at 45min.
I noticed the beer is a bit darker then the haus pale usually is.
All in all, it just toned down the peak hop flavors. The basic hop flavor is still there.
There is a very unique flavor in there, and I have a hard time explaining it. Kind of a mild but definately noticable resinated taste. Tastes like a very earthy beer, I am a fan.
Anyone else ever tried this?
