War Practice proved fun and productive for the BMDL Brewers!
Jorundr taught a class on this year’s hyppocras experiment (different herb blends in the same base wine), and I taught a class on our yeast experiment (different yeasts in the same base must – honey and water).
We are now looking ahead to Pennsic and our next experiment – bittering agents used in ales. Hops were not nearly as common in period as they are now, so we will be showcasing four other herbs used to bitter/flavor this beloved malty beverage.
The June meeting for the guild is Wednesday, 6/12, at Lady Alysoun’s house in Pleasant Hills. Official start time is 7pm, but since all-grain brewing takes all evening, feel free to stop by as early as 4.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions. The address is in the Dark Pages (or you can contact the host directly).
Hope to see you then!
