Let me dig through my old documentation and try to find exactly where I got

If there is a great interest in brewing with gruits, I'll start digging up
everything I have in my
resources for folks. It would be interesting to actually brew a beer that
appeals the the
modern palate while using medieval gruit herbs.
Sound interesting to anyone but Damaris? If so, I'll post the information
here instead of
