Wow, this beer sounds really intriguing. I'm trying to picture basil and beer together, but can't quite wrap my head around it. I may have to swap you for some sometime. I have a winter ale that's been bulk conditioning for a couple months and will hit the bottle at the end of the month. I think that could do the trick.

Yeah, it's hard to really get without tasting it. All I can say is that basil has some characteristics like hops, with that touch of licorice.

I'll probably just pick up the stuff at the store, only 4 or 5 bucks, and worth it for some good beer. Can't decide if I should add a pinch of cinnamon or not though. Does the cinnamon flavor of the basil come through pretty strong in yours, Evan?

Defintiely love that licorice flavor. I had to kill HALF of our basil crop....they tried to take over (Probably 4 feet of SOLID basil plants....blocked the lawnmower)....but we still have a healthy amount of basil (Ya got me on the variety, probably 2 types).... What advice can you give while I still got my crop??????

It's extremely subtle...even moreso in the IPA version where the hop flavor/aroma is strong. I've never done it with cinnamon, but I bet a pinch wouldn't be a bad thing.

More than likely some of it is sweet italian...which works very well in beer. The other popular variety is Thai, but its leaves are smooth and the bolting buds are purple...so that's how you know.

Advice? Use it, baby! Make some basil beer, and do it fast, because that stuff dies quickly. Follow my recipe or something close to it, and I promise you will not be disappointed. Those cup measurements are loosely packed, BTW. Victory & Honey malts are a couple of my favorites...
