Dish of the Day: Brew your own beer? Not so hopping mad…

This weekend I began preparations to grow my own hops. The first crucial step to making my own beer. The rather unattractive, dark green, vine-like plant produces flowers (these are the hops), which contribute a bitter flavour to the brewing mix and offset the sweetness of the malts. You wouldn’t want to use them for anything else; however, they taste absolutely disgusting.
