About the Fir Trees:

There are many fir species out there that have been used for centuries. We primarily harvest White Fir and Douglas Fir found in Southwest Colorado. Our packages include a mix of both, but they are primarily White Fir. Fir is high in vitamin C and has long been used for teas, tinctures and respiratory support. The needles contain a wide variety of monoterpenes such as α-pinene, β-pinene, limonene, myrcene, camphene, Δ3-carene, and terpinolene, as well as monoterpene alcohols such as α-terpineol, terpinen-4-ol, linalool, citronellol, and fenchyl alcohol. Other Douglas fir constituents include esters and aldehydes. It also offers anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antimicrobial (bacterial, viral and fungal), expectorant, and sedative properties.

Typically fir has more tannic properties than spruce, so depending on what you are making, often honey or other sweetness is preferred to balance the flavors. In brewing, this is why spruce is typically preferred as there is much less pitch carrying the tannins than you find in fir. That said, you can still brew up some pretty amazing recipes! Fir is typically considered more "piney" than spruce. Think pine/citrus with fir, where you get more gentle pine/melon with spruce. If you tried brewing with our spruce and it was too 'melony' for you, try kicking up the dankness of your next brew with some fir tips!
