Description

Whether the Cosby's made their own beer for dispersion in the Tavern is not known; however, the following recipe was found among the family papers.
11 To Make 15 Galls of Beer
2 114 Galls. good molasses
112 Bushel wheat Brans, to be clean sifted
1 peck Hops
The above to be all well mixed with 18 gals. water and boiled about two hours and when milk warm, add about 1 1/2 coffee cups of yeast. Let the cask be filled quite full-as soon as it works and the foam falls, let it be well-stopped and it will be fit for use in eight days and not sooner. If the molasses is not very good it will not be amiss to add I qt. more. I forgot to mention that after boiling it is to be strained- The yeast is to be put into the cask before the Beer is put in."
