What in the world is that going to taste like?! Did you go into a field and pick as many
"herbs" as you could find? :ban:I have no idea, really. I made one before on an IPA base with
the same ingredie...

Sour Gruit, Dubbel grain bill brewed with Nettle, Mugwort, Marsh Rosemary, Sweet Gale, and Wild
Yarrow. Saison primary sacc, followed by inoculation with my dregs of a Consecration clone.

For those curious, the time has come. This stuff is awesome, dry like champagne and
refreshingly tart. Got lots of great feedback at my club about how refreshing/dry/delicious it

Yep, 60 min boil for the herbs. You want to use them to bitter.

So props to anyone who gets the reference in the name... This is a recipe for an ancient
hop-less gruit. Supposedly highly-intoxicating and prone to producing amorous feelings along
with being a cure ...

About 1.016. At 1.015 you're supposed to remove 1/2 gal of must, steep w/ remaining heather,
and return. I went ahead and did it because I was close. The must is still fermenting down to
my target SG

Just took a gravity reading. This stuff is amazing!

Lost a little more than expected to heather trub... wound up with about 4.5 gal at 1.062, which
is still in the range I expected.

Here's the wax floating to the surface from the comb (very easy to skim off)

So here's the heather being stirred in and the resulting heather tea I woke up to. I was
surprised, it's darker than I thought it would be.
