Genevieve Enderes - This was made in a large crock - and was covered with a cloth to keep away all bugs and varmits. It would work for sometime, then would be bottled. You would soon know if it had worked long enough because it not it would blow the caps off the bottles and the beer would be blown over the entire room. It was supposed to be in brown bottles, kept in a cool, dark basement to age, which as a rule did very little aging - much was consumed before bottling or soon after. Think of the kick it had while working.
