Thread: Hops honey

  1. #1

    Default Hops honey

    I didn't want to post this in the "ingredients" section, because even if I were to find some, I doubt I would use any for a traditional mead (perhaps a braggot) but just out of curiosity, has anyone ever seen or tasted hop blossom honey?

    Hmm, guess I never pictured bees frequenting hops plants. They don't have flowers. I suppose they could dig around in the cones, but your not going to find any sweet nectar there, just extremely bitter resin.

    I guess it could exist...I've never heard of it. /shrug

    Hmmm...., good question Ben. I've grown LOTs of hops but I've never seen a bee on them. Never! Lady bugs, aphids, etc., but never bee. There is a HUGE layer of pollen but I've never seen a bee attracted.

    Mead, like life, is a journey and not a destination. So stop and savor the flavors along the way!


    "Gawd, I hate drinking mead and posting in the forums."

    Nothing currently fermenting!
