well i knew it would not taste that great with all the gin in it. but i wanted to taste it how he used to drink it that way i can alter it properly and make this into a modern day recipe with possibly juniper berries instead of gin, to get a subtle taste or aroma.
i really just wanted some help with brain storming, and so far it has helped so much

thanks everyone for posting your thoughts

i just went to the LHBS yesterday to pick up ingredients. i will post after my brew session

Default uh oh

so the recipe i posted on here i found out last night is not a recipe for beer but a recipe for HOPS BITTERS for making mixed cocktails. our family loves gin.
with that being said last night my brother and i still brewed the batch that i had prepared, and i hope it turns out well.
recipe:
5lb vienna malt
5lb pilsner
1 lb honey malt
1lb cara red
simcoe @ 60
palisade @ 30
cascade @15
whirlflock @ 15
1/3 oz orange peel @ 15
wild cherry bark extract (homemade) @ 10
ginseng extract (^) @ 10

not 100% positive what that recipe would be considered. but i hope it turns out well. i will keep you updated

Notice the herbs? Those are probably bittering herbs, not hops. Could use both. You need to think about what was readily accessible/gathered in the area at the time. I think that it's the key to making this beer. A true clone of his beer probably sucks by today's standards, but could have been acceptable then. I would expect harsh bittering tones from the herbs, earthy and musky from the bark, and some lacto souring from less than perfect sanitation. You can boil the wort for fifteen min, cool it and throw in some raw grain. Let the lacto sour to taste (a few days to a week), then do your normal boil with bitters to kill off the bugs, cool, pitch yeast.

Who knows, maybe you're inventing a stellar new type of beer.
