DESCRIPTION: A recipe for ale
To make Ale drink quick.
When small Ale hath wrought sufficiently, draw it into bottles; but first put into every bottle twelve good Raisins of the Sun split and stoned: then stop up the bottle close, and set it in sand (gravel) or a cold dry Cellar. After a while this will drink exceeding quick and pleasant. Likewise take six wheat-corns, and bruise them, and put into a bottle of Ale: it will make it exceeding quick and stronger.
