Hi there, again!

I'm trying to brew with what remains in my inventory. But, a friend asked me if I could try something Floral, but without a citrus taste. I found a few things about Hop Oils (interesting!) but still, I'd like to have your very important opinion.

I'm concerned about when to put my hops to get bitterness and aroma (with Floral in mind). I found that "Geraniol" was the type of oil that could bring me more "Floral", but still, there isn't much % of this oil in any hops over 1% !

In attachment : Recipe, hops and grains inventory and oil charts.

Thank you!


I attached the recipe.

I'd also add, as it appears you're looking for something a bit dark, maybe look into traditional scottish (or Fraoch) ales and try brewing with a large amount of heather. I also have used lavender in the past, but thats a bit tricky at times.
