I was thinking the same thing about the myrrh. He never says what the dillution ratio was. I would add a drop at a time to the tea and see what you get.
Like my snazzy new avatar? Get Sons of Zymurgy swag, here, and brew with the best.

I gotta tell ya, just between us girls, that Revvy is HOT. Very tall, gorgeous grey hair and a terrific smile. He's very good looking in person, with a charismatic personality... he drives like a ****ing maniac! - YooperBrew

I have purchased ionized Gold which is suitable for what you're doing in addition to raw Frankincense and Myrrh resins. these actually need to be mulled down so to speak sias not to taste undesirable when combined into beer. That requires burning the resins. My best advice is to choose some good grains when making your beer.

I have a bad habit of doing this. Has it been long enough for an update?

I actually just had a random thought about trying this out. A google search actually brought me to this thread. Kind of curious to see how its progressing.

Not sure about myrrh but I am pretty sure frankincense is antimicrobial. Might kill all your yeast.

Yep... myrrh too. "So strong are the antimicrobial effects..." From TLC

another edit. Its possible they increase each others antimicrobial effects in a synergistic fashion when combined. PubMed

Another edit... I just realized this post is from 2011. I need to lay off the bottle tonight apparently...

You could always make a traditional and steep the frankincense & myrrh in secondary. Just like oaking with the myrrh for a week and steep some frankincense in a nylon bag for a couple weeks. I don't think it will taste good but would be a nice idea.
A painting says a thousand words. But a painting while on good mead just looks funny!

So i know this is an old thread, but I am very curious to know how it turned out? I love frankincense and would be interested to learn about how it may be included into homebrew
