Thought that I would share a beer recipe from George Washington, courtesy of the New York Public Library. More information at the link.

"Take a large Sifter full of Bran Hops to your Taste -- Boil these 3
hours. Then strain out 30 Gall. into a Cooler put in 3 Gallons
Molasses while the Beer is scalding hot or rather drain the molasses
into the Cooler. Strain the Beer on it while boiling hot let this
stand til it is little more than Blood warm. Then put in a quart of
Yeast if the weather is very cold cover it over with a Blanket. Let it
work in the Cooler 24 hours then put it into the Cask. leave the Bung
open til it is almost done working -- Bottle it that day Week it was
Brewed."
