    Great!  Jazzbo Bob had overflow production on his alehoof, and is 
shipping me some.  Since I'm new to gruits, what would you recommend 
I do with it?  Do I boil it like hops?  What other gruit herbs/roots work 
well with it?  How much of each for a 5-gallon batch?  
    My great ignorance is exceeded only by my desire to learn.
