Treacle Beer


Beer made by fermenting treacle and water (Eaton 1822, Hammond 1819, etc).

Original Receipt in Hammond 1819;

Treacle beer
Put a gallon of boiling water to two pounds of treacle, mix them well, add twelve quarts of cold water and half a pint of yeast, put it into a cask, cover it close, and in three days it will be fit to drink. If made in large quantities or designed to keep, put in some malt and hops, and when the fermentation is over, stop it up close.
