Great program, I really haven't seen a bad episode of Modern Marvels, but any of the alcohol based ones are excellent (Beer, Wine, Liquor).

Just finished watching it again. It covers quite a bit in a short period of time.

So I just got around to watching this. It really was interesting, and at least tried to explain the process in an intelligent way. Of course, they had to use budweiser as the example of how to brew :rolleyes:

Did anyone notice how much darker the stuff they pulled from the fermenter was than the final product (after they add more water?)? ;)

During the Sam Adams bit, I almost had my wife talked into buying me a bottle of Utopias for Christmas, till she asked how much it was.......

Ahh The kicker :rolleyes:

I also got busy and forgot to DVR surely it will air again soon? No dice on Hulu. but I think it takes 3 weeks after airing to appear there.

I just saw this yesterday for the first time. Good show I thought. I really love history, which is really why I got into mead making/drinking, in the first place.

Has anyone here used that mix of herbs (yarrow, etc.) in their beer instead of hops?

Major fakeout, Creamy. I didn't see OP's date. So I checked out history channel, and wouldn't you know there's a Modern Marvels marathon on today. Hmm, that must be it. But wait it's not there. Oh, because this is a 3 year old thread.

By the way, I'm assuming your familiar with the term gruit and are asking about a specific mixture? Otherwise search gruit lol.
