Product Description

Aframomum melegueta. Also called "Grains of paradise", "Guinea grains" and "Melegueta pepper", these small seeds look like cardamom but have a character all their own. The spice is native to West Africa and during medieval times was used to flavor food. It has also been used as a pepper substitute.  Adds a peppery zing, but also has notes of citrus and pine aroma. Used in wit beers, Belgian ales, holiday beers and summer ales.

Instructions: Use sparingly--usually about one gram (1/2 tsp) for a five or six gallon batch of beer. Crush lightly before using. For a companion spice, try using 1/4 to 1/2oz of licorice root, honey, molasses, or 1/4 to 1/2oz of sweet orange peel.

Package Size: 2 gm packet
