Things brewing…

===Upon reflection, staying up until 4 making yarrow beer was not the most conducive to my being conscious before 1 pm (chuckles)

===Hey, it is coming upon the solstice, the full moon was up last night, I figured it was a good time to do this.  We are running low on the batch from last year, and we had a REALLY nice crop of yarrow in the garden. (it is one of the “weeds” that I encourage in my garden…and the quality of the plants was excellent this year.)

===My recipe for such things comes from Sacred and Herbal Healing Beers: The Secrets of Ancient Fermentation by Stephen Harrod Buhner…I highly recommend his books)

===Yarrow beer is very…lemony, but not?  No hops, of course. (grins) We are growing some, but I admit, I am not a hoped beer fan.  Once we have more space for such storage, I may set up a more formal brewing area, and play with a bunch more things.  As might be guessed, I do not drink alcohol to just drink alcohol….I am more into the idea of the healing effects one can get from the working with yeasts and herbs.  What you eat and drink should feed your soul and your spirits..(grin)
