Nettle Beer. There are no end of prescriptions to make this common but excellent drink. Here is one:— Gather the young shoots, wash them well to free them from insects and grit. To each quart of nettles allow 1 gallon of water, the juice and rind of two lemons, and 3 lb. of moist sugar. Put the water, nettles, sugar, and lemons in a clean sauce- pan, and let all boil together for half an hour. Strain off into a clean tub through a coarse cloth. When milk-warm, spread 1 oz. of fresh German yeast on a thick piece of toasted bread. Set this afloat on the beer, covered with a thick cloth, in a warm corner, to ferment for 36 hours. Then strain it into a wine cask. Bung it down at once. It is ready to use in six weeks.
