Try a good market with a bulk food, spice section.

Go to etsy.com and search "dried chamomile." Very fair prices and ships quickly. That's what I did.

I brewed this up last week with no problems. Took a sample today when I moved it to the secondary and everything fermented out just fine but it tastes very strong of chamomile. Should I have strained the chamomile out after the boil before putting in then the fermentor? I have a feeling this is why the chamomile is so strong.

I am working on getting all of it out now but wanted to check if anyone else has done this. Also, would it help if I added some more honey to this batch to mask the chamomile a bit? Thanks for your help.

I put the chamomile in a hanging hop spider - see pic. They should be treated like any other hop addition to the boil. Put them in a hop bag or something similar. I'm sure that none of the chamomile got into my fermentor.

BTW, I still have bottles of this. I found one a week ago and it was still very nice. The chamomile is not strong in mine, and the honey is recognizable but just barely.

Passed Pawn, I'm going to brew this recipe this week. I wanted to confirm the Chamomile addition at 60 minutes ...I use it in wits frequently but normally add at flameout. Love chamomile and look forward to tasting this!

Cheers and thank you

Yes, the chamomile boils for 60 minutes. I copied the process listed in Extreme Brewing ("Wildflower Wheat"). It explicitly states to boil the chamomile for 60 minutes, so that is what I did.

Thanks for confirming! Based on your earlier comments, the honey is added at flameout, correct? Thanks again.

The extract kit I put together is...

Specialty grains:
.5 lb honey malt
1 lb wheat malt

Fermentables:
6.6 lbs Wheat LME
1 lb. Wildflower Blossom Honey

Extras:
2 oz dried chamomile flowers

Yeast: WLP320 American Hefe.
Is this a 2.5 or 5 gal boil?

That's a 5g batch. It's the recipe right out of Extreme Brewing.
