    What follows is a list of  fine suppliers of herbs used in gruits
that are in the states.  When looking about for herbs look out for
valerian, elecampane, lemon balm, wood sage, sloes, nettles & comfrey.
All of these things make for great ales!  All though i have yet to post
recipes using some of these herbs plenty of  recipes are around so give
it a shot.  Be sure to keep in mind that you have to use a hop surrogate
for almost all ales.  Don't just assume that what ever herb a recipe
calls for all ready has something that serves the purpose of  hops.
