Back in the OLD old days, circa 1960, I remember my dad making home
brew. I even remember going with hom the the Safeway store to buy
Pabst (or maybe it _was_ Premier) Blue Ribbon Diatetic Malt. It was a
yellow and blue can with a picture of a chubby [fat] lady on the
front. The can held about three pounds of black, highly bitter crud.
His recipes called for one can of that black gunk, and several pounds
of cane sugar.
