May 11. 1821.I have no reciept for brewing, & I much doubt if the operations of malting & brewing
could be succesfull[y] performed from a reciept. if it could, Combrune’s book on the subject. would teach
the best processes: and perhaps might guide to ultimate success with the sacrifice
of 2. or 3. trials. a capt Miller now of Norfolk … was during the late war, confined by the Executive to our neighborhood, perhaps indeed by yourself. I took him to my house. he had been
a brewer in London, and undertook to teach both processes to a servt of mine, which during his stay here & on one or two visits afterwards in the brewing season,
he did with entire success. I happenes to have a servant of great intelligence and diligence both of which are necessary. we brew 100. galls of ale in the fall & 100. galls in the spring, taking 8. galls only from the bushel of wheat. the public brewereis take 15. which makes their liquor
meagre and often vapid. we are now finishing our spring brewing. if you have a capable
servt and he were to attend our fall brewing, so as to get an idea of the manual operation,
Combrune’s book with a little of your own attention in the beginning might qualify
