Okay, I am a luttle shy of typing well right now. I was having a beer whatching the kiddos play out back, and started picking hops off of the vine and tossing them in my pale ale. Didnt change the taste much, but, I guess the lupilin is doing its job. I have had 3 beers and feel like I had 9. My glass is half full of the yellow-dustiest hops I could pluck, and I keep pouring fresh beers on top of them- any try this before?
If not- it'd be a whole lot cooler if you did!
[I'm back!]

You should send me a few pounds so I can experiment.

I have taken pellets to the bar before. It really helps when you go out with your BMC buddies.
I did it for flavor and aroma. How does the luplin affect alcohol absorption?

I've put a cone or two in there before, but not half a glass. It's just like dry hopping, one glass at a time.
