Don't think it would have the same flavouring effect that peat
does, if you've ever been down wind of a peat fire you'll know what I
mean. Peat is made up of the decayed remains of many different plants
that have had years to mature in a damp, acid environment, spagnum moss
is a single plant and although I must have burnt it in the past I don't
recall any memorable smell.
Spagnum moss was/is also used as natural antiseptic dressing for
wounds so it might also have a go at our yeasts. Well at least you wash
will be clean, no alcohol though ........... !!!!!
