Does anyone have a recipe for Midas Touch Golden Elixir brewed 9000 years ago.
I'm very curious about this brew.

Thanks Brewt001 and Cregar. I think it would be interesting to brew a small batch.

After looking at the recipe in the book again last night, I'm thinking of brewing it now.

Word of advice before you try it - DON'T expect it to be a beer like you're used to. It's really more of a beer/mead/wine hybrid beverage, and it seems to me that a fair number of people who don't like it seem to have judged it as a beer only, which isn't entirely fair. To each his own as far as liking it or not, but you'll likely do yourself a favor by knowing what you're getting so you're not shocked by it.

Personally, I love the stuff.

Sounds like it might be similar to Victory's Golden Monkey. I'm excited and think we might try some of this. Thanks!
