Default Anyone know of any traditional scandinavian recipes

I have done a few extact brews and am looking to get a little crazy with the next one and was thinking of a scandinavian beer. I have read that they have traditionally used juniper, spuce or both. Any ideas would be awesome and much apperciated.

Sahti is a classic Finnish beer. Done the old fashioned way, it's a rye and pale malt grist, bittered with juniper while lautering, and fermented with bread yeast without boiling. I don't know if you want to get that crazy- mad props if you do!

The December 2011 edition of Brew (your own) magazine has a couple recipes and a nice back story for "Gotlandsdricka" -- a traditional Nordic brew that includes Juniper boughs/berries among other ingredients.

I'm way too new to this whole hobby to try this, but my wife and I are big gin and single malt whiskey drinkers (and all around juniper and smoke fans in our libations) and we're definitely intrigued by these.

I'd re-post the recipes here, but I don't know how BYO or the internets would feel about that.

Thanks! I'll have to read more about, those they sound pretty challenging.

If you have a chance, check out a book called "Sacred and Herbal Healing Beers" by Stephen Buhner. It's got several Sahti recipes, a few Gotlandsdricka recipes, and a whole lot of information on ancient brewing techniques from Scandinavia and many other regions. Cool book! If you don't have the time I could probably shoot you one of the recipes.

I've had authentic Sahti when I was in Finland last summer. It's a thick, bready, sweet drink with LOADS of banana esters, sold in cheap looking plastic bottles. At first I didn't like it very much, but once you get used to it it makes for a great summer drink.

Simply googling 'BYO Sahti' will lead to a couple of recipes, I migh try them out myself sometime

Looks like I may have to go check out that book and try one after my dusseldorf altbier is done. Hopefully the alt turn out pretty good i cant find any comercial ones to try anywhere here in kansas city.

Wasn't there a thread last week of someone brewing a traditional nordic beer? I can't think of any clue words to search for it. Did anyone participate in the thread that has it on their subscriber list?
