Hello fellow brewers!
Anyone ever come across any really old recipes? I'm talking about the
brew Thomas Jefferson may have made. I do remember hearing about some
type of "Spruce Beer" that was flavored with pine needles and sap.....
I'd like to attemp an original homebrew from the 1700-1800's.

You should try to brew sahti. Google for example "sahti recipe" and
you'll get several. Sahti is traditionally flavored with juniper. Good
introduction to sahti to start with would be:
Hardest part of sahti making for a non-Finn is obtaining the Finnish
baking yeast. Some other baking yeasts should do the trick though.
I've seen a recommendation that Wyeast 1024 - Belgian Ale should
produce taste profile much similar to Finnish bakers yeast (distinct
banana taste that is) but I've never tried it.

I found this site while surfing Google , I printed it out , unfortunatly the
URL doesn't appear on the print out .From memory (which isn't much good ) I
think it was from an english university .
I think you will find this Ebook more useful than a bunch of recipies , when
you read it I am sure you will see why . I posted it on Australian Craft
Brewer , 2 or 3 years back .
