    I thought I'd see if anyone has done this and why?
    Think. I read another thread on here a while ago about it

    Can someone please explain what the purpose is of this

    Done it in a Berliner Weisse. Contributes very little IBU (a high IBU is said to inhibit lactic bacteria) but still provides anti-bacterial properties from the hops.

    I'm guessing a bit here but think it likely was what they did in medieval times as most beers then were raw ie no boil, now it may be good for a mild where you don't want much flavour or bitterness just for preservation.

    I did it in a raw ale. Took about 100g of First Gold (7,5%AA) to get 35 IBUs.
