So it's early days for me and I'm still on the kits. I have a young's A.P.A and wanted to spruce it up a bit and have it for Christmas. I was going to go out picking some fresh spruce tips tomorrow but don't know exactly how much to get and when to add it to the brew. Should I a handful, boil them and add the extract (how many mls would that be?) and add it to the first fermentation? Or should I add it when the hops is added? Sorry for the ignorance. All a learning process.
