I assume grains of paradise are the same as paradise seeds? Do you crack them first? Also I have dried Juniper Berries that I am using. Should I use the same amount as your recipe is calling for? Junipers do not grow in my area.

You know I'm not really sure on the berries. I'd recommend looking up conversions used when using the berries in food.

And yes, Grains of Paradise = Paradise Seeds

Thanks!

It's brew day! I'll be making this one exactly the same as last year and it'll hopefully be done by April 20th, the entry deadline for the local homebrew competition.

Sorry that I never started taking orders for juniper branches. I've been out of town for work since the beginning of February and I just got back the other day. When I stop feeling like a worthless pile I'll start harvesting.

This sounds awesome, I'm very anxious to try this soon. My family's Norwegian, so I suppose a Finnish brew is close enough. I'm curious if you crack the paradise seeds at all, or do you just bag and boil them? Now I just have to track down some Juniper supplies in Cleveland.

Yup, crack the grains of paradise and just toss them right in.
