Basically a waste of "hemp" if you are just throwing into the boil, if I understand the chemistry correctly.



Reason: edit: in before the lock!

If my chemistry is correct Tetrahydrocannabinol is alcohol soluble. I imagine if it was soaked in a strong alcohol(such as vodka) for sterilization of the hemp*. The Tetrahydrocannabinol would create a solution with the alcohol and both could be added near the end of the fermentation process.

Dry "hop"? I hope the mods don't shut this one down. It is legal in one form or another in many, many states.

THC is alcohol soluble. Your best extraction method is done high proof alcohol. I've ground and dissolved "hemp" in a small amount of grain alcohol before and it makes for an awesome mix drink.

However, using enough hemp for a 5 gal batch would be crazy expensive.

With all that said, I think your best bet would be to grind and soak the hemp in grain alcohol for a few days, strain, and add that mixture to a batch at bottling/kegging.

Kettlehouse in Missoula, MT has long made a "Bongwater" Hemp beer. Maybe they could give you some tips?

I've done it. Substituted half of my hop additions. Worked better than expected.
