Default Turn of the last century Mexican homebrew

a work colleague of mine found that I brew beer and shared a recipe he found in his great grandmothers effects after she died. His grandmother said that her mother brewed beer at home in Mexico and that this was the recipe. It is in Spanish so I cant read it and his rough translation made no sense on portions. I have uploaded an image of the recipe and will try to figure out how to get his translation up as well. Please help if you can. It would be neat to try a homebrew from recipe over 100 years old.

Well, I tried but cant figure out how to attach a file to a private message. I uploaded the file to a webstie. Here is the link It was a bit difficult to scan as the paper is reddish and the writing is rather light

Hopefully someone can translate and re-post. I'd really like to see this.

I'd be happy to provide permanent image hosting for the image on my paid webhost. In addition, conversion if it's a PDF.
