Brewing with Hemp by Ross Koenigs, the companion book to Brewing with Cannabis: Using THC and CBD in Beer by Keith Villa Ph.D., explores the Cannabis sativa plant from a brewer’s perspective, focusing on how hemp (which contains less than 0.3 percent THC), hemp flavors, and cannabinoids play in beer.
Koenigs leads readers through the history, legal considerations, physiology, and ecology of hemp, while helping professional brewers and homebrewers alike understand the science of cannabis and how to best utilize the popular plant in beer.
“There are many cannabis consumers who also enjoy craft beer, and I’m looking forward to sharing my vision for how hemp can be additive to an already innovative industry,” said Koenigs. “Through Brewing with Hemp: The Essential Guide, I’ll not only take readers through the process and experimentation, but I’ll also share recipes and tinctures and my experience of bringing these beers to market.”
The second book in the cannabis series is perfect for homebrewers, professional brewers, enthusiasts, and appreciators of the hop plant’s dank cousin.
