    Not long! There are at least 19 beers made with nettles in our database.

    Super neat stuff, brewing with botanicals. Fella that I know in Tennessee does a lot with them at VonSeitz Theoreticales.

    Actually, the German Reinheitsgebot, or purity law, of 1516 didn't mention yeast. They didn't know about yeast back then.
