Sage in White IPA
« on: May 19, 2013, 12:58:20 PM »
I'm interested in putting sage in a White IPA and am wondering how much to use/when to use it. Has anyone tried brewing with sage? How much do I need, and how should I add it? I've read about making a sage tea and adding it to the secondary. Anyone thrown it into the boil?
Primary: Grapefruit IPA
Secondary: Berliner Weisse

I have a Belgium blond that I use sage in. I julienne about 1 leaf per gallon and add it at flame out. ( I  do a 15 minute whirlpool and it takes about 10 minutes after that to cool my wort.) It is not over powering, more of an interesting background note that you wonder what it is. Really goes well with chicken and pork!
