Message sent before I completed it.  Sorry about that.

Groat may not be Gruit after all. The author has one other passage in
the book which references groats:

Beer made from the infusion of malted groats, 
or malted rye, is lighter and more diuretic than 
the common barley beer.

Groats, in a grain sense, are: 

Hulled, usually crushed grain, especially oats.

So maybe this isn't such a mysterious ingredient after all.
