For some reason it seems i cannot find anywhere that has Sweet Gale / Myrica Gale available. I know the Brewer's Garden company offered it but it just seems that no one has it in stock anymore? Did I miss something? Anyone have a source?

(I want to brew the Gotlandsdricka recipe from Radical Brewing)

Your right! I took a look at my usual sources, and they all seem to be out of stock. I did find an active link at Austin Homebrew Supply. You might want to try them.

Also, remember to search as 'Bog Myrtle' as well as 'Sweet Gale' and 'Myrica Gale'....

Good luck!

I buy alot of my tea and spices/herb from a company called Rose Mountain Herbs. Looks like they carry it.

I checked a few sites, and this one has it listed .. not sure if it is in-stock...

I have never tried any direct replacement for it, as I usually find a few grams if I hunt around. I also found a link with interesting data in a plant database.
