Oh yes, I definitely agree about the use of different herbs in beers like mugwort. I particularly notice that a lot of the herbs seem to increase the strength of the beer. My best yet was one that I used blue lotus flower in and you definitely felt the affects of that herb. But, I've also noticed altering effects with a lavender ale that I did.

Would like to comment on aging of mugwort in beers, but had both batches that I aged get a bacterial infection (I still think it also had something to do with the damn meadowsweet that I used in them as well)...

Could you describe the taste? I like stouts, but does this come off with a medicine flavor? I'm really want to give this a shot but am a bit apprehensive.

At bottling, add Indian sarsaparilla and molasses to 1 qt water and boil 20 min. Bottle with oxygen-absorbing caps if possible.
I just made this and have an extra keg around. If I'm going to keg this beer, would you recommend doing the same (albeit less molasses?) and carbonate naturally in the keg?

If force carbonating, which I'm thinking I will do, what about making up a quart of molasses/sarsaparilla tea for a secondary for about a week?

The fermenter smells heavenly, I'm really excited.

Does this seem over-primed as listed? The calculator at http://www.northernbrewer.com/priming-sugar-calculator/ would put that at about 4.5 CO2.

Brewed this, bottled and kegged. Anyone else find it to be extremely sour? I may have just made my first batch of mugwort vinegar!
