Default Brewing Stone Age Beer

Another primitive beer, this one not so much based on a reformulated recipe but on an ingredient. Not incredibly authentic, but an interesting challenge. Does anyone know how they might be able to use 100% wheat malt (einkorn) and get proper conversion?

You can use 100% wheat malt, you just have to add some enzymes to help with the conversion. If the eikhorn did not have the diastatic power to convert itself, these brewers would have had to add enzymes, they may just not have gone into that much detail on an article that was written for the masses, not targeted at the brewing community.

Quite an interesting brew, I'd love to try that perhaps fermented with a yeast cultivated from brewing tools of that age...

From the documentaries I've seen, there were not "brewing tools" in that age. Beer was made by putting wheat/barley in something watertight, it would rain, and wild yeast would ferment it. That's how beer was made for most of human history. If you want to try that, be my guest. It'll suck a**, but will get you drunk!
