Dandelion Beer 1907

Put 3 quarts of yellow dandelion petals in a tub with one gallon of water, previously boiled and left warm. Cover with a flannel and stir daily for three days. Strain and add 3 lb loaf sugar to liquid, the rind of two lemons and ½ oz ginger. Boil for 20 minutes, skim and strain into a tub, add the juice of the lemons and when tepid add a little yeast on a piece of toast. Next day put in a cask and in 6-8 weeks the beer is ready to bottle - F.W, Dundee.
