Heading back from a trip to Dubai, where I picked up, amongst other things, a quantity of really nice, fresh saffron and I was wondering if anyone had used it successfully in an ale, or whether it's best kept for the usual culinary uses. I know DFH used it in Midas, but other than that I don't know of any other commercials.
I was leaning towards a blonde or wheat base, to let the color and flavor come through. Perhaps a wit recipe without the orange and coriander? Add at flameout?
