This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Natural Medicine.

For this BB, you will create an infusion of hops flowers. Infusion is a method of extracting desired compounds from plant material by steeping the material in hot or cold water, depending on the plant and its attributes.

To show you’ve completed this Badge Bit, you must post:
- a picture of your hops flowers being harvested
- a picture of the infusion being made
- a picture of the finished infusion

Approved BB submission
Made a hop flower infusion.  After steeping for 5 minutes, I strained the flower out of one cup, and left them In two other cups.  The two with flowers left in definitely tasted more bitterness, but palatable.  I preferred the one that was strained, though.
