To Brew Strong Beer

To a barrel of beer take two bushels of wheat just cracked in the mill,

and some of the flour sifted out of it; when your water is scalding hot,

put it into your mash-vat, there let it stand till you can see your face

in it; then put your malt upon that, and do not stir it; let it stand

two hours and an half; then let it run into a tub that has two pounds of

hops in it, and a handful of rosemary flowers; and when it is all run,
put it into the copper, and boil it two hours; then strain it off,

setting it a cooling very thin, and setting it a working very cool;

clear it very well before you put it a working; put a little yeast to

it; when the yeast begins to fall, put it into your vessel, put in a

pint of whole grain, and six eggs, then stop it; Let it stand a year,

and then bottle it.

A good table-beer may be made, by mashing again, after the preceding is

drawn off; then let it stand two hours, and let that run, and mash

again, and stir it as before; be sure to cover your mashing-vat well;

mix the first and second running together.
