Nettle Beer
What You Need:
  • A basketful of young nettles
  • A handful of dandelions
  • A handful of currant leaves
  • 1 pound sugar to each gallon of liquid
  • A handful of goose grass
  • 1 oz yeast
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar

  • How To Cook:
    1. Wash and drain the nettle and currant leaves, goose grass and dandelions and put into a very large saucepan.

    2. Add enough cold water to cover, bring to the boil and cook rapidly for 10 minutes.

    3. Strain through a sieve, pressing well to obtain the entire flavor from the leaves.

    4. Pour into an earthenware vessel and add the sugar.

    5. Leave until lukewarm, then add the yeast, previously dissolved in a little of the liquid, and the cream of tartar.

    6. Leave in a warm place for at least 12 hours to allow the yeast to work.

        Bottle and cork lightly. After 24 hours, cork very tightly. Leave for at least 2 months before drinking.
