Brewers Garden Paradise Seed 2g
Also called "Grains of paradise", "Guinea grains" & "Melegueta pepper", these small seeds look like cardamom but have a character all their own. The spice is native to West Africa & during medieval times was used to flavor food. It has also been used as a pepper substitute. While it does have a peppery zing, it also has notes of citrus & an "earthy" pine aroma.
Use sparingly, about 1 g or ½ tsp. for 5 to
6 gallon batch of Belgian style specialty or holiday beer.
Crush lightly before using. For companion ingredients try ¼ to ½ oz. of licorice root, honey, molasses, or ¼ to ½ oz of sweet orange peel.
