you can't get what you want by soaking it in water, because what you want is essentially not soluable in water.

soak it in grain alcohol (a perfect solvent for it) for 2 days and add the liquid to the bucket at bottling time. i did this in my wilder college days a few times.

The reason to add it at bottling time to avoid having an expensive batch that goes bad. You don't add it until the end of the process when you know the beer is good.

A pre-soak in water will help remove some of the green grassy taste.

I picked it up in some counseling I was doing with some poor sinner who had lost their way and needed some help finding their way back to the path of goodness and light.

wow, cool link.
That changes my mind a bit, not unlike T1 saying to steep it in Vodka, the Brewers used a high alcohol barley wine to extract the THC...

cool

I read the thread...reads more like...Once upon a time...advertising gimmicks at its best.

It's not "hemp beer" unless there's hemp in it. In this case it should be called "dead hemp seed beer" at best. A waste of time to brag about something that's not real.

I've had hemp seed beer. It sucked. Very bitter, and not a good hoppy kind of bitter. More like a "I just drank the bong water" bitter. Uck.

hemp is good for some things, THC is good for other things.

Mmmmm... bong water beer. Now that is something I can definitely pass on.

I guess if you want to keep it legal, you're stuck with hemp. If you want it to be good, you'd better go to a more "friendly" part of the world.
