replacing hops with a related plant renowned for its narcotic
properties. I tried this once, with mixed results."

Excuss me a minute, while I flame. 1) Hops and that other herb
to which you are referring, besides being plants, are not
related. 2) Why would you put anything in beer or encourage
others to use ingredients which contribute negatively to the
flavor and natural aroma of beer? 3)If you want to use drugs, go
ahead. But if you want to brew REAL beer, use only hops, malt,
water and yeast.
