5.0 out of 5 stars A Must for Home Brewers and Wild Food Fans, 13 May 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sacred and Herbal Healing Beers: The Secrets of Ancient Fermentation (Paperback)
This book is a real winner. I love brewing country wines and beers and this book is packed full of recipes for indigenous trees and plants. I've started some birch sap sparkling wine and a sycamore sap sparkling wine (adapted from the Maple recipe) and plan a few others.

Being long haired, beardy and with a healthy habit of sitting out by open fires in the woods, it's easy to be empathetic with the author and his connection to nature based beliefs. He immerses into the lives and brewing techniques of indigenous people all over the World, past and present, which adds yet another dimension to the interest value of this book. This is a man who works with respect and with immense researching skills.

It's not worth knocking off a star for this tiny point, but I would have been happier with metric measurements in the recipes. Saying that - The conversions are fairly easy.

Happy brewing and foraging.

Unfair to bemoan lack of metric, its not the traditional system in Britain or the US, it may have been imposed in Britain, but authors (so far) are not forced by law to use it.
