My next beer is a Saison. I want to put hibiscus and rose hips in it. The recipe will be something like:

2row
pilsen
caravienne
abbey malt
lemon zest

crystal and nugget hops 35ibu.
wy3711

steep, cool and add to secondary-
8oz. hibiscus
4oz. rose hips


How does that sound to you? I want the hibiscus and rose hips to be easily noticeable, but not overdone. Not really sure how much to use. I'll make a gallon of iced tea to get a better idea of how much to use.





I have a pound of each. Any suggestions on using hibiscus or rose hips?

10 times as many people are interested in reading my Korean Poo Wine thread compared to this one. Not sure what to think of that.

HA! Korean Poo Wine>Hibiscus Rose Sasion???

Seriously though, I have a mind to make a similar Saison. I was going for a table Saison with Hibiscus/Rose Hips and orange zest and dosing with Brett in secondary. Was wondering how yours turned out unless you opted on the Poo Wine instead?

I use 2oz of dried hibiscus in my Gose and it's plenty, provides a very nice balanced floral aroma. If this is a 5 gallon batch I think 8oz is way too much! I steep them for 20 minutes in a muslin bag at flameout.

I used 8oz in a five gallon batch of Saison and, unless you want what is basically a hibiscus flavored beer-like substance, it was way too much. You could probably go as high as 4oz, but I would keep it well below 8.
