I thought I did, but I could be wrong. I wanted to make hop scented soap but the scent didn't stick so I tried it with some candy one Christmas when I was making hard tack for gifts and it kinda worked.
I got a report from DeFalco's down in Houston that one piece of candy works to carbonate a pint sized bottle and adds a slight bit of hoppiness to the beer. I've never tried it as I haven't bottled for about 20 years now but could see it working.
