Catch A Truly Patriotic Buzz

A lot of people have been feeling all kinds of Patriotic since those brave Navy SEALS stormed into Pakistan and put a bullet into Osama bin Laden’s head. It feels like the Fourth of July came early.  So, I figure we might as well celebrate like true Americans by getting drunk and eating tons of red meat.

And what’s the best choice of libation for this celebration? George Washington’s personal brew!

It’s been at the New York Public Library under lock and key for years, but they decided recently to release it to the general public. Here is the recipe. Enjoy getting hammered like a true American Patriot!

To make Small Beer

Take a large Sifter full of Bran Hops to your Taste. – Boil these 3 hours. Then strain out 30 Gallons into a Cooler, put in 3 Gallons Molasses while the Beer is scalding hot or rather drain the molasses into the Cooler & strain the Beer on it while boiling Hot. Let this stand till it is little more than Blood warm. Then put in a quart of Yeast if the weather is very cold, cover it over with a Blanket & let it work in the Cooler 24 hours. Then put it into the Cask – leave the Bung[hole] open till it is almost done working – Bottle it that day Week it was Brewed.

And yes, George Washington just said Bunghole.
