Default Gruit Ale

Making an experimental 1ish gallon batch.
1 tbsp yarrow
1 tbsp mugwort
1 tbsp st. johns wort

Boiled the herbs in 1.5 qt water for 30 min.
I added 1.5 lb light dme, boiled for an additional 10 min, cooled to pitching temp and threw in re-hydrated Nottingham. 1.060 OG

These pics are directly after pitching yeast.
Definitely has a greenish tinge from the Herbs.
Only the primary vessel I will transfer to a 1 gallon in about a week or so when fermentation slows down.

I'll keep my eye on this. I just got some gruit ingredients but haven't used them yet. I'm considering starting out by just trying a few different things for aroma to see what works.

I've had a little taste of the ingredients and liked Yarrow and Bog Myrtle the best so far.
