    3068 AND Chamomile in a Hef

    Has anyone ever done a Hef using 3068 AND added chamomile? All the recipes I've seen use American Hef yeast, and the more research I do the more I'm thinking I need to add more Chamomile so that the yeast flavor doesn't over power it. I'm doing a 3.5 gallon batch this weekend (3.5 because I only...

Added 0.2oz Styrian at 60, dash of seaweed (can't remember the name!) at 15 and 1/5 teaspoon of fresh ground coriander. I used saf-04 yeast and am thinking of oaking half. A...

    Non typical hops for a Hef?

    Hi HBT, Reasonably new to HB, but i'm loving it so far! I'm making a hef this weekend, but I don't have any "standard" hops (Hallertau) for it. I was curious if anyone had ever used anything else, and what were the results. If there are any people with an unofficial PHD in hops that could...
