In the life of each home-brewer there is a moment when he decides to do something crazy (like gruit). I understand, that chances of me making a drinkable gruit are pretty low... But.. you know.
I already got a nice selection of dried leafs and flowers that are used in cooking (like making disgusting and not so much teas). And I'm trying to experiment with just boiling it as a tea (just like my grand mother used to do).
My question is... What should I use instead of bittering hops? Did anybody actually tried to create an alpha-acid chard for herbs other then hops?
