Don't let the celery seed in this put you off. I made a bottle of this on Saturday. I am enjoying some as I type here. This was a big hit with most of my friends. TRY IT!

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

How would you make this if you wanted to naturally ferment yourself in bottles? Could you just use water instead of soda water and just add an appropriate amount of yeast and bottle?

Where do you get FRESH GROUND celery seed? I'm assuming you are not supposed to use the just normal celery seed in the spice isle at a large supermarket.

Dug-

That would be correct. Just substitute regular water for the bubbly stuff, add yeast, and bottle.

As for the fresh ground celery seed, buy whole celery seed and grind it yourself.

Well, a clean rock would probably work. But a mortar and pestle is the traditional kitchen tool. In a pinch, I've used a hammer and a paper towel.

mortar and pestle works but its some work. a coffee grinder (sans ground coffee [well cleaned]) is a good find at thriftshops...usually under $5
