Greeting Fellow Brewers, just bottled my absolute first batch of brew, Irish Red Ale. Seems to be a good ale, Yes I had to try it while bottling.
Got my next batch on order, Honey Weizen. I do have a question regarding this one though.
I also ordered a 1lb Light Amber Honey, and 1 oz of Licorice root.
Planning to add half the honey during 1st Fermentation and the other half in the Secondary stage.
One of my favorite liquor is Jägermeister so I am trying to do add a hint of licorice flavor in my beer. To not be to overwhelming just slight in the back ground, I am thinking of adding the root into my bottling bucket on bottling day.
Is that to short of a time for the root to add flavor to the beer?
Considering instead to add it to the Secondary Fermentation? But afraid that the flavor will to overwhelming.
So if anyone has tried adding flavor to beer and have advice as for the timing when to add it, I would appreciate it.
