Yes I still am going to use hops. I am making a LME anchor steam clone but an using white labs SF yeast and a few special ingredients with mugwort. I am about to start my brew now!! I have some gallons of water starting to sterilizing now!! Ive decided to only use 1/2 oz and if i want more aroma I will "dry hop". Thanks and Cheers

Soo I just put in the mugwort and the first scent was very powerfull, i can see how potent it is, I only added a pinch (about1/8oz) and about 30 minutes into the boil. The fragrance is very nice too its going to turn out great Thanks for the advice

I've been looking into doing a gruit brew for the spring so this thread is one I'll follow. So far I've narrowed it to an Irish Red base adding some yarrow and mugwort in place of the hops... I'll post when I finalize. Good luck with your brew...

Soo i finished my beer and think i got excited with the mugwort and added it too early. I tried the wort and it was a lil bitter but it could be from me squeezing my steeping bag (Newbie move). But its fermenting now and i decided to make another beer to show for a friendly work contest. I bought the ingredients to make dogfish heads Midas Touch, which is a good beer to me. I added a few extra ingredients like mugwort but in moderation and last 15 minutes. By tasting the wort i think it is going to come out great!! thanks again

So i just a hydro sample and HAD to give it a lil taste. The anchor's taste had mellowed out big time with the mugwort and had a sort of herbally sage taste which i enjoyed. The Midas also came out well.. Thanks for the help
