Ancestral beer brewing and primitive carbonation.
bring back an older picture today. this was a fun experiment i did a couple of years ago related to creating carbonation using simple foraged tools.
it's basically a low alcohol primitive forest beer (mugwort, yarrow, willow bark, turkey tail mushrooms) brewed with various sources of sugar (cane, honey, insect honeydew) for 4-5 days. enough to get you a nice buzz.
these days, all beers are carbonated but i wanted to figure out a way our ancestors could have done it without the advantage of somewhat modern material such as glass bottles.
my solution was to create a sort of swing-top bottle using a gourd. a layer of dried mugwort was placed between the top of the gourd and the main body. using local yucca fiber i made a bow and placed it on day 4 of the fermentation.
due to the pressure exercised by the bow, by the next day i managed to achieved a slight carbonation in my wild beer.
i love doing stuff like that, kind of pushing the boundaries of what you can do with food or drinks and the interaction of natural ingredients and material.
this is on page 230 in my book "the new wildcrafted cuisine". if you need a gift for yourself or a friend, it's available on amazon. link in profile.
