I’m a huge fan of reader questions, and once-in-a-while a question comes up that has to go out to the broader community. Here is one such question:
I’ve been brewing shop bought syrup beer kits for past couple of months, and although my hubby assures me they taste good, I want to move on and concoct my own brews now. Having discovered that way back in the Medieval times, women were brewsters, I just wondered if any one out there had a recipe that captured as near as possible the essence of what a Medieval ale would be like.
First, let me applaud your efforts to brew using beer kits in order to gain confidence and knowledge for moving to all-grain brewing. I think you’ll find it very rewarding.
