  • Usage (and other alcoholic drink names) on perry.

    June 16, 2010

  • Take ten gallons of ale and a large cock, the older the better; parboil the cock, flay him, and stamp him in a stone mortar till his bones are broken; then put the cock into two quarts of sack, and put it to three pounds of raisins, some blades of mace and a few cloves; put all these into a canvas bag and a little before you find the ale has done working, put the ale and bag together into a vessel; in a week or nine days time, bottle it up... Give it the same time to ripen as other ale.
