hist-brewing: Gruit and unhopped ales - Shaving Ales

Tue Apr 25 15:02:51 PDT 2000

"Shaving Ale" is a beverage I am not familiar with.  You reference your source on this information as being from "Instructions For Thrifty Ale Wives".  Where did you find this book and where is the author, Sykes, from? (Greg, you should add this to your reference section on the Medieval and Renaissance Brewing Page)  Also, is there any additional information about the history and/or culture of this beverage in the book or does anyone else know of additional references and/or information about ale made with wood shavings?  

Thank you Adam for all the great information, I look forward to experimenting with this stuff.  Sorry if I am jumping the gun with some of these question.
