Wormwood ale

Last night I brewed my first batch of a wormwood ale or purl

Easy easy steps

1-Boil 1/2 oz of wormwood for an hour in 4Gallons of water
2-Pour 8oz of Wildflower honey over 4lbs of dry malt extract
3-Strain the wormwood from the boil and pour over the DME and Honey.
4-Let Cool to about 70 then pitch your yeast
5-Wait six days before the honey is cleared, bottle and prime with a tsp of sugar
6-Drink 14 days after that, this was from the book of healing beers
