So, I'm doing a Zymurgy article and I thought I'd do some research on making hop teas to compare hops. I've done this before with poor results, but I wanted to quantify things a bit. Holy s***! That has got to be some of the most vile, disgusting stuff to ever pass my lips! 3 hours later I can't get the harshness out of my mouth. Do people actually make this stuff and put it in their beers? Man, I shudder just thinking about what it tasted like.
