Has anybody heard of adding Worm Wood to your secondary? I know that wormwood is the main ingredient in Absenth but I was wondering if you could use it in a beer recipe and would it have the same charictoristics (spell check) as Absenth?


Planning: Root Beer, (for nefew)
Primary 1: Apfelwien
Primary 2: American Porter
Primary 3: Chimay Clone
Secondary 1: AIR
Secondary 2: AIR
Bottled: Apfelwine, Orange Hefe (the nastiest brew I have ever tasted!!)
Drinking: Belgium Whit (home Brew)
Smoking:Camacho Triple Maduro

I had half a batch of a heavily-oaked wee heavy sitting in secondary aging...and...one night...after getting effed up on absinthe...I came home and decided to dump some wormwood into it (I had it laying around because AHS has it on closeout and I picked up a couple packets just for the hell of it). It aged like that for at least a month....probably more.

I just bottled the wee heavy last week; I'll let you know how it comes out.
