Just to add to the confusion, at least some of the grout herbs (used ubiquitously in brewing prior to the 16th Century in Europe) had/have psychotropic properties.

I'm sad this thread puttered out. I love reading about wines of the imagination. I figure if you can make brownies with it, you can make wine. I just don't have a clue as to "how". Oh Google......?
