Adjunct - Licorice Root (1 lb)

Traditionally used in dark beers such as Porters and Stouts, this root imparts a very distinct licorice flavor and is surprisingly sweet. It contains Glycyrrhizin, a substance 50 times sweeter than sugar! Use about 1/2 - 1 ounce per 5 gallons and add for the last few minutes of the boil.
