Birch Beer is amazing also

I know it was originally made from the bark- but have never run into anyone who's still done that. Have you, and can you fill us in on how, or point us to places? thanks
There is a place in my home town that makes it. I still cruise down and buy some when i'm visiting the folks! I've never done so myself but i was able to find this online
I may give this a shot this winter, i'd be curious to hear if anyone else trys it out
No you're getting me thursty. I have some small birch (to young to cut but might make good beer). I might look into that....
I started dipping to some white birch...
ya, it burns...
I just started burning wood Feb. of last year so this year is an experiment of sorts. I had on hand at the beginning of the heating season Poplar, Birch and Ash. I burned Poplar until mid December and since then have burned Birch. The Birch has been excellent for heating, it burns longer than the Poplar did. Toward the end of the week I am going to start to burn Ash and will be burning it for the remainder of the season.
You will like the Ash if it's White Ash (used for baseball bats) or Black Ash (similar in appearance to Oak). Green Ash is OK. All should be seasoned of course.
