Never heard of this before, but my wife wants me to make a black ESB.
Has anyone ever used wormwood to bitter beer?Have not used it, but it is said to be one of the most bitter things known. I would experiment on a pint of beer, with very small amounts.

I took a gravity sample of my IPA yesterday with 2012 Cascade and Chinook. Beersmith told me I hopped it to about 54 IBUs. The reason I call it IPA is because the OG was supposed to be 1.055, but I ended up with 1.061...so it's borderline. The gravity came down to 1.010! Crazy. So the abv is 6.66%. The number of the beast!!
Anyway, the hops didn't taste way out front, but I could definitely tell I'd used Chinook. The grain bill was 2-row and about 10% Special B, so it tasted similar to Arrogant Bastard, which is sort of what I was wanting.
I think I'd use this yeast again.
