NO yeast recipes

INCIDENTALLY, beware of all recipes which omit any mention of yeast, there is no such thing as a "no yeast" recipe for the simple reason that without yeast there can be no fermentation of the sort we want. Yeasts are everywhere about us—in the air, in the soil, the bloom on fruit, in milk, in our mouths—and will find their way into a fermentable liquor. If you use a "no yeast" recipe, you are really simply relying upon any natural yeast which may be on the fruit you used or, if you killed that with boiling water or sulphite, upon any airborne yeast which may find its way into your brew . . . you may get a fermentation but the result may be not at all what you hope.
