Berlin Bitters

by :: [Bitters]

Each region in Germany had a local bitters, and this is a recipe for one in the Berlin area.

Berlin Bitters Recipe:

Instructions

Mix the solids in a mortar and reduce to a coarse powder. Extract using slow percolation or maceration over a period of days.

To make the bitters, mix 1 fluid ounce of this extract with 6 ounces of alcohol and 10 of water. To make Berlin Wine-Bitters, replace the alcohol and water with sweet catawba or sherry wine.

.@DavidWondrich nice, I haven't listened to Jethro Tull in a long time, I might need to dig up the old cassette.
The first concert I went to was "The Cult" at Cobo Hall in Detroit on January 20th, 1990.

@ryanfeeley the kit is because people like to try the Acid Phosphate as well, so I bundle and discount.
