Default Raw Meat?

Is this real? By real, I mean a drinkable beverage that might actually adhere to some's taste.

One can only wonder. I've seen two rationalizations for the meat, one was to provide nitrogen compounds for the yeast, the other was to absorb the sulfur byproducts. Tradition has it that rats/mice would fall into the barrels and drown. Since farmhouse scrumpy was served to fieldhands, the farmers didn't worry about it and it did give a distinctive flavor to the cider.

If you look around, you will also find ale recipes that call for a whole chicken. As in, cut its throat and toss it in.

Palmer recommends tossing out any batch of ale which has fur or feathered creatures in it. I'll drink to that!

I'll pass. I'll have the rare steak with my beer, not in it.

This jumps out at me...

Quote:
12 pounds, mixed apples (make sure they're clean with no blemishes)
1/2 pound, raisins
1/2 pound, raw meat
1 gallon, water at 70 degrees
champagne yeast (tradition calls for bakers yeast)
So.... clean the apples, leave the meat uncooked...

people eat raw meat....lol... but I can't say I like the idea of leaving it in a vessel full of bateria food for ~3 weeks at room temperature. Better hope you made a HUGE starter for that batch!! HAHH!

REAL scrumpy does not use a starter, only all nature tree yeast.
