---------------------------------------------------------------------- Date: Sat, 13 Dec 2008 10:25:44 -0500 From: "Lawrence H. Smith" <lsmith at sover.net> Subject: Re: Gruit Beer Recipes There may simply be no middle ground if the other guy just does not like bitter. You could presumably bitter with dandelion roots or something, but that's still going to be bitter. I've been toying around with some "gruit-ish" things, but none are really complete - however, rather than seeking an alternate bitter, (ie, bitter herbs rather than bitter hops) I've been looking at "different balance" - balancing malty with ginger-hot, for instance. The cranberry concept sounds possible, in this line - balancing sweet with sour. I'm definitely not looking for historical accuracy of some form of pre-hopped beer (which I sort of doubt are really all that well documented anyway), just fiddling with things that I might actually like. Personally I dislike IPAs and the like, but enjoy stouts, porters and milds, if reasonably balanced - but I have been looking at things not quite on the beer spectrum, at least in part to see if I can make some stuff for some folks that are just not that into beer. -Lawrence Return to table of contents
