Re: self-documenting cordials

  Do you mean that in 1669, when Sir Kenhelm Digby was described
  as "eminently learned" in that book title, he was not even 19?

Since period ends at the beginning of the 17th century, your mathematics
needs work.  More precisely, in 1669, Digby was dead.

He lived from 1603-1665.

More to the point: brewing was performed through the entire period of the
Society, and took a radical turn toward what new technologies just after the
end of period.  Information gleaned from Digby would not be terribly
insightful into period brewing.

Some period sources, retyped, can be found on one of my pages at
