 From what brief excursions into the research book thingy.... I have a
couple of questions I'd like to throw out into the BVC realm.

1)  What caused the sharp increase in books on the art of brewing and
beer/ale/wine making
in the midle to the end of the 17th century?

2) Since women in the Middle Ages were the primary brewers -- why aren't
more women in the SCA interested in brewing?  What prompted this
disinterest?  Is brewing in the SCA truly a "MAN's" Activity? (grin)
