My inlaws passed away about 4 years ago, and as we were cleaning out the house, there was a hutch with a bunch of cookbooks, and magazine recipes. Basically, we just moved the whole hutch, and never went through that drawer.
Until last week.
And what did I find? You guessed it, a home typed (remember typerwriters?) reciped for homebrew. I'ts got to be from the late 50's - early 60's based on what I know about the in-laws. I knew they used to make wine, but I nver knew about the beer. Anyway, two pages, neatly typed recipe and insttructions. And of course now I want to brew this recipe.
Or maybe not. I'm not sure what "beer settler" is. Maybe a fining?
I'll see if I can get scanned and post here somehow, but the recipe is basically:
Hop flavored malt syrup
Fleischman's bread yeast (that's right)
Anyway, it was way cool to find, and I'll probably just frame them, and hang it up in my tap room.
