Does it really take eleven and half ounces of hops to ferment out two
ounces of hops?  Sounds like overkill.

One professional brewer (De Dolle Brouwers) HAS already done a fermented
hopdrink. But I have NEVER heard about somebody trying to ferment WITH hops,

Well, I do note that I forgot to mention the four pounds of
"Alexander's Sun Country Light Malt" in the brew! ;-)
