All this talk about different ingredients has brought up several examples
about which I know very little (my only references being Papazian's and
Birch's books):

yarrow
cardamom
woodruff
honey
raspberries

Papazian has covered cherries, ginger, cinnamon plus various others
that were not mentioned.

I'm interested in three things about these ingredients in beer:

1 - What type of beer they are good in.

2 - Approxamately how much and when they should be added.

3 - What their affect is.

Any comments from those of you who have tried these or ANY other interesting
ingredients would be greatly appreciated (I know there must be A LOT of
creative homebrewers out there ;-) Please respond by e-mail, and I will
summarize.
