Beer Style: Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer (21A)
Recipe Type: extract
Yield: 5 US gallons
I tasted the sample which I took to measure the SG. The pine taste and smell were definitely present but not excessive; they added extra sharpness to the brew on top of the hops. Hard to say more from a flat, sweet, yeasty sample only halfway fermented.
Bring extract and 1 1/2 gallons of water to boil. Add Cascade hops and boil for a total of 45 minutes. Rinse spruce cuttings, then toss into the wort for the final twelve minutes of the boil. Cool. Pitch yeast.
