The Ghosts of Homebrewing past

(1/2) > >>

micsager:
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
Table Sugar
Fleischman's bread yeast (that's right)
Beer Settler.

Anyway, it was way cool to find, and I'll probably just frame them, and hang it up in my tap room. 

morticaixavier:
cool,

you gotta brew it, just once.

I've heard a rumor (totally a rumor, no supporting evidence at all) that at least some of the fleischmans bread yeasts are the same yeasts budweiser uses.

micsager:
Yea, I probably should.  I found this:

I just don't want the LHBS guy to laugh at me when I buy some hopped extract.  LOL.

HA! I just imagines Mic walking into the LHBS with a fake mustache, sunglasses and a fedora pulled down low.
