Bitters from hops

home made bitters with hopsMaking my own bitters starting with Hops as the bittering agent. homegrown herbs. I started with four jars one with dried homegrown hops, one with the peel of a grapfruit, one with rosemary and cloes and one with slices of prunes. I left all four soak for two weeks before mixing them to taste. I found that it was best to use mostly the hops and grapefruit jars.

Here are the completed bitters.
The bottle is labeled using armor etch and chalk as shown in this post.
