This is where I get to break out one of my favorite terms in the entire English language, "confirmation bias". ;)

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.

Oh, it's definitely bitter. I tried to make my own Absinthe back in my younger, stupider days by steeping herbs/spices and a bunch of wormwood in vodka. That was some puking of epic proportions - and it wasn't alcohol induced as I could barely choke down one shot of the stuff. Good luck to you if you want to try it in beer...

I have watched people who I had previously seen handle vast amounts of alcahol reasonably well do some of the stupidest things you can imagine while drinking homemade absinthe.
