Subject: Medievalists, beer and bread

Well, I play SCA, so I guess that means I'm a medievalist, even though my
interests lie more in pre-medieval times.
The ancient Celts would make bread using _barm_, which is the krausen that
floats on the top in the early stages of fermentation. I imagine that they'd
just make some beer, scoop off some krausen, and pitch it into their bread
mixture, although I imagine that you'll want to be sanitary about it to
avoid funny-tasting bread.
