"We know God loves us because He gave us beer." Ben Franklin
Which came first - bread or beer? In the ancient Mesopotamian Epic of Gilgamesh, when the wild man Enkidu drank einkorn beer, ‘his heart grew light, his face glowed and he sang out with joy’. Ancient naturally brewed beers not only lightened the heart, but were brewed with healing herbs and even contained antibiotics.
How was ancient beer made?
Ancient peoples discovered 'beer' by tasting sprouted grain bread that had been left in water to ferment naturally. Gradually the art of producing beer evolved using sprouted grain bread boiled with dates or honey and fermentation. Later the bread stage was skipped, and the grain was soaked in water, sprouted, dried (malted), mixed with water sweetened with dates or honey and left to ferment naturally. Ancient ‘beer’, more like an unhopped ale or gruit, was a thin oatmeal-like porridge-brew with about a 3% alcohol by volume. You can recreate this ancient brew using the recipe for Einkorn KVASS above.
Brewing Basics: Sterilize all pots and bottles thoroughly. Simmer malt (ground dried sprouted hulled grain) in water for about half an hour (mashing) The sweet liquid tea-like ‘wort’ is then boiled and filtered for up to an hour. Herbs, spices, sugar, honey or maple syrup can be added to taste. The wort is rapidly cooled, then yeast is added. As the wort slowly ferments at room temperature, the sugars are converted to alcohol.
The Talmud (Pesachim 107a) describes four different types of beer; Shechar (grain beer), Pirzuma (date beer), T ’ainy (fig beer), and Asni (berry beer). Date beer was especially enjoyed in Babylon (Baba Batra 96b). Beer was used as a medicinal tonic to preserve herbal extracts in alcohol. Hops were added to balance the sweet malt with bitter astringency and as a preservative. Fermented herb beers, known as ‘gruit’ in Europe, were common in Ancient Israel. Even fermented milk, common in nomadic societies, was enjoyed. Cohanim priests who drank too much fermented milk were prohibited from serving in the Temple if they were inebriated (Talmud, Krisus 13b).
