Hops are already expensive enough. Seems like a novel idea but a waste of money.

I believe, if its not legal in Texas it's not ok to talk about it on this forums.. anywho.. Only good for flavor and aroma additions.. if you just want the effect then just make a extract and throw that in or even better, sum butter to spread on sum bread while drinking a homebrew..

This thread is so shut down already.

Make an extract of your exotic herbs and dose the batch on bottling day. Many herbs have compounds that don't readily dissolve in boiling water but are easily extracted in high proof vodka.

This.

If you are looking for flavor, hops are cheaper and probably better for flavor. If you are looking for a different kick from your beer...THC is alcohol or lipid soluble, so a large "dry herbing" would likely be your best bet.


I think it's only a matter of time for a Colorado or Washington brewer to make a beer like this available commercially.

Asking for Taste, no the buzz.

I would just go with a dank hop (summit, apollo, columbus, galaxy). And yes, this thread will be gone in a few minutes most likely.
