Has anybody got experience with using rosemary in place of hops in beer?

Planning to make a batch using some fresh rosemary that a friend gave us, and was wondering how much to use for a 5 gallon batch of pale ale.

Google has been less than informative.

Let us know how this turns out! I just recently had the Saison Du Buff by The collaboration of DogFishHead, Victory and Stone. It had rosemary, thyme, sage and parsley...you could smell all of of them... but could only really taste one...cant remember which. It was surprisingly refreshing

Saison du buff is great! I've had the batches brewed at stone and dogfish, still waiting to try the victory batch.
I'm interested to hear what you find and how it turns out may try this soon too

Not gruit but -

Epic Brewing in Salt Lake City makes an excellent rosemary-sage ale called Utah Sage Saison. I was so inspired I'm going to try duplicating it.
