    Something you should probably know about: When I click on any of the recipe links from this page, all I get is a 404 error message. I tried each one just to be sure.

    I know you’ve covered it in some individual comments, but I’d love it if there was a section covering equipment, like how to acquire or rig up an airlock or what general equipment to acquire. I believe there’s a similar section at the start of your cookbook to help you set up.

      I know this is long after the fact, but basic 3-piece airlocks are cheap. If you are still looking, try for supplies. Having made a few batches of cider and such myself now, I find that the most useful basic supplies are a true 1-gallon carboy, a stopper and an airlock. Also, get you some true sanitizer from a brew shop, rather than relying on bleach or something. All of the rest of the materials you would need if you are making cider can be found in many kitchens – measuring spoons and cups mainly. Now if you want to make beer or wine you’ll probably need a bit more in the way of supplies, although I’m not entirely certain about wine, since the only sort of that I have made was a lemon wine and it wasn’t handled the way traditional wines are.

    If you’re interested in suggestions, how about some mead with juniper berries? It’s mentioned in the opening scene of the video game The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, and a few bottles can be found in the game, so it fits with the ‘fictional brewing’, if not the ‘Game of Thrones’ brewing. I’ve seen a few different recipes out there, some are metheglin with juniper berries added into the mix, some are more simple, and some are based on gin recipes.

    It’s something I plan to try some day, but I’d be interested in seeing your take on it!

      Love the suggestion! I’d like this site to be all things fictional and historical brewing, so that definitely fits. I’ll add it to the list! 🙂
