Dawn Redwood Needles come off of a tree in my yard, one of 3 conifers that shed their needles each year. I figured I'll try to use them instead of rice hulls in the mash. I'll do a cold ferment, which I've heard brings out smokey flavors from the scottish yeast, and I'll add some of my omani yeast to get some banana/hefeweizen flavor. Oak chips because why not?
