I wonder how many judges have actually grabbed a hand full of peat and tasted it too. Or are they parroting what someone else said. Kind of like me with black currant. I've never tasted them, but it sounds so Martha Stewarty.
Umm, I have. I bought a pound when I was a newbie for a recipe I thought I was going to brew. Once it arrived, I knew it wasn't going in the beer. I still have it for a 'training aid'. It still reeks nearly 3 years later, through two Ziplocs, so I have to keep it in 2 Ziplocs and a plastic bin.
I'm also thinking about growing some currants next year to see what's what. If they grow, I'll bring them in for a club meeting for education.
