'Strange Brew'......

hopefully not .......'killin' what's inside of you'.


The lyrics of Cream sprung to mind when I decided I'd give Nettle Beer a go.  So having picked 3 large carrier bags full of young nettle tops and boiled these up, added sugar and later the yeast, the strange brew is on it's way.  This concoction is now residing in a brewing bucket and appears to be bubbling nicely.  Hopefully in a few days time we (sorry I) will be sampling this brew.

And I was so keen on picking more nettles that this evening we have dined on Nettle Soup.
