Yeah, I've had beers with toasted seeds, too. Intersting flavor, no psychoactive component at all, which is what people are usually after. I was recenty given some beer that had a heavy dose of hash added to the boil. No different than the beer would be plain.


I suppose that is why most people do it, which is clearly wrong, but the toasted aspect has potential in a few different beers I thought.

The way to go about it is to make a tincture of cannabis, put that into the bottling bucket or keg.

http://www.cannabissearch.com/edibles/tinctures/
ON TAP:
1. 1C
2. 4B
3.
4.
5.
6.
Bottled: Gewurztraminer, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, 16B, 18B, 18E, 19B, 20, 21A, 23, 27
Fermenting:
Next: 5C

BEER, a mixture of malted grains, water, hops and yeast, that is transformed through the course of fermentation that transcends the simplicity of those basic ingredients, fundamentally into the drink of life.

THC is only extractable in fat or pure alcohol and fat works the best which is why people boil it in butter for making cookies. You would not want to add butter to your beer though....

That's why that link states to use Everclear or 90 proof minimum.

use a tincture of Everclear and cannabis and put 1 or 2 drops into the glass of brew. (called Green Dragon and is best in my Mirror Pond clone.)

I have a big black IPA ready to brew. I got about 3OZ of shake and stems from my buddy which is why i was thinking of making it. I have read the green dragon thing but not sure why it wouldnt work just adding it in the last 5min of boil or dry hopping?

It's a complete waste IMO, but go ahead and try if it makes you happy. I recommend not adding it to the kettle.

I had always wondered about this, since I knew about the alcohol soluble part. good to know that it's not worth the waste
