Beer Soup

A theme that recurs on this blog is how much our ancestors used to drink (see "Data," 12/11/06). In some of my readings I'd come across mention of a "beer soup" or "beer porridge" our forefathers enjoyed.

So I decided to try it. I used this recipe:

and McEwan's Scotch Ale. I would suggest not using all the lemon rind. What you do use chop very finely. This also might have been improved by having some heavy bread for dipping - it was a bit much to eat on its own. Newcastle or Guinness might be good beers to try.
