So I have just finished my second all grain brew, and being a bit of a nerd I liked the idea of reading up about historical brewing, and being really quite a big nerd quite like the idea of making a historical brew and taste something that people would have drunk 500 years ago!
So I am thinking of putting together a gruit (a mix of herbs and such to take the place of hops ) and was wondering if anyone knew a good place to get hold of things like bog mrytle and yarrow (in the uk) ?
failing any way to order these online I think I will probably go on a hike and dig up whatever I can find to go one step further and brew using the plants found in my local area, and maybe recreate what homebrewers living in my very house would have drunk 500 years ago!
here's hoping history tastes good
any advice is welcome!
