spruce tips

(1/6) > >>

goschman:
I am curious as to what exactly spruce tips are. Thinking about next year's Christmas beer already. I have a blue spruce in the back yard...

mabrungard:
Spruce tips are the very young first growths from the trees. They are very soft and sweet. They do not have much in the way of sprucey or piney flavor when they are very young.

goschman:
Oh ok...so I assume my mature blue spruce will not help...

Actually it will work fine but you would need to harvest some of the new growth that emerges in the spring as they begin to grow.

I encourage you to try a spruce beer before you brew one.  You might change your mind.
