Short Description:

Berry Herbal Brew is a unique blend of specially formulated ingredients that combine during the fermentation process to release their healthful benefits.

Available in 1/2 or 1 pound quantities.

Combine this nutritional mix with your own fresh or frozen red grapes and blueberries and you will have a delicious powerhouse! (Recipe adapted from Debi Pearl's The Vision book.)


Instructions:

1. Add 1 part of Berry Herbal Brew mix to a glass gallon jar.

2. Pour 3 parts warm (not hot) water over brew mix. With a clean hand, combine thoroughly.

3. Cover jar with a cloth and let sit until dried herbs are hydrated (3 to 5 hours).

4. In a food processor or blender, put 2 parts fresh or thawed concord grapes with seeds, 1 part fresh or thawed blueberries, and 1 1/2 parts sugar. Add enough Berry Herbal Brew liquid mixture (about 1 1/2 to 2 parts) to mix the berries and sugar together well and blend for about 1 minute. Add blended mixture to gallon jug, cover and put a rubber band around the mouth of the jar to keep fruit flies out.

5. Near the end of the first week, mix Berry Herbal Brew once with clean hands for about 2 minutes. Make sure you have a towel over the opening to keep fruit flies out. After mixing, cover with a tight cloth and rubber band over the mouth of the jar. Set jar in cool, dark place for 3 weeks (can be months). You can expect a small amount of mold to form on top, which is a good sign that the fermenting process is taking place. This is not harmful to your brew and can be skimmed and discarded.

6. LATER...(after 3 weeks or longer)... In a clean glass gallon jug, drape a thin cloth (cheese cloth works great) down in mouth of jar. Use a rubber band to firmly secure cloth around jar mouth. Slowly pour brew through cloth to strain into clean jar. It might take awhile, so use another cloth to keep any pesky flies away!

7. When it stops straining, use clean hands to twist the cloth together (keeping herbs inside) to squeeze out as much liquid as possible. Discard the remaining herb mixture. You can then pour the strained liquid into an old wine bottle or whatever you choose. I like using wine bottles because they have small openings, colored glass, and the cork fits tightly, keeping the brew well protected.

Whatever glass container you use, remember that the Brew will keep fermenting, so you will want to use something like a cork to seal it. This will keep it from exploding in the container you are storing it in or when you open it. If you do decide to use a regular lid, you will want to open it every once in a while to release the pressure.

8. Keep Berry Herbal Brew in a cool, dark place - a cabinet works great.

From Our Reading and/or Experience...

Berry Herbal Brew is a unique blend of specially formulated ingredients that combine during the fermentation process to release their healthful benefits. The naturally occurring alcohol acts as a nutrient and enzyme preservative that helps enhance the properties of the fruit and herbs.

Indian Gooseberries are a MOST important ingredient. They have been shown to produce a synergistic antioxidant effect when blended with other juices and extracts. Indian Gooseberries give an antioxidant boost to other ingredients. Even without the blend, Indian Gooseberries have antiviral, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties.

Blueberries are rated #1 for their anti-oxidant properties, properties that are boosted when joined to the Indian Gooseberries. By raising hemoglobin and oxygen levels in the blood, blueberries are quite an immune builder, improve brain function and balance digestion. Blueberries help lower bad cholesterol and strengthen the heart.

Bilberries are a good source of vitamin E and C, bringing even more antioxidants to the mix (which are boosted by the Indian Gooseberries). Bilberries act both as an anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory. Known for lowering blood sugar levels, they also add strength and suppleness to vessels in the eye and extremities. Many eye difficulties are helped as bilberry contains flavonoids that protect the collagen needed to maintain healthy vessels in the eye. Varicose veins, inflammation, diarrhea, skin ulcers, poor digestion, high blood pressure and other circulatory problems are helped by the addition of bilberries. The strong anti-septic properties of bilberry also help heal mouth sores and gum disease linked to heart problems.

The seeds of the grapes are a great source of beneficial compounds that contribute to the antioxidant actions along with concentrated Vitamin E, flavonoids, linoleic acid and tannins. These are found in lower concentrations in the grape skin and juice along with resveratrol, another form of antioxidant.

Pomegranates have antioxidants that attach to its unique sugars in such a way as to protect against atherosclerosis without aggravating diabetes. In some cases, the fruit seems to replace the need for prescription estrogen.

Fig leaves are known for their astringent properties and are considered a digestive aid. Grape leaves help reduce inflammation and pain.

  • Research has shown the ingredients in this mix contain many nutrients and anti-aging properties, help with poor eyesight, and are good for overall health.
  • Please note that the fermentation process of the Berry Herbal Brew is necessary to change the chemical balance and increase potency for maximum benefit. It will become alcoholic the longer it brews. It is safe for children after the "fresh brew" period of 3 weeks, but it is not recommended for children after this. The same recommendation applies to pregnant or nursing women.
  • We like to take 3 oz of Berry Herbal Brew each evening (adults) or 1 oz for children.
  • It can be used as long as you like. We have kept it for over a year.

airlock for berry brew?
by Sue on Mar 30, 2014

Can you use a jar with an airlock for the berry brew fermentation or does it have to be covered with just a cloth? Thanks.

    Re: airlock for berry brew?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 1, 2014

    Hello, you do not want to close the brew with a seal tight lid! The purpose for putting the cloth over the top is to allow the herbs and juices react with the air. It is a fermented drink which means it is alive with bacteria and needs to continue to grow and break down to get the correct end product. The cloth allows the brew to breathe but doesn't let any dirt or pesky flies into the mix. Thanks!

Using powder for smoothies
by Steph on Feb 14, 2014

Hi. First, thank you so much for your WONDERFUL products. My mama has been a customer for years and I always thought she was a little crazy. But then I tried your Dr. Cinnamon and became a herbal believer :) Your family really has the best quality, variety, and prices for herbs anywhere! My question is, can I use the Berry Herbal Brew just in the powder form to add to smoothies? Or do I need to make the brew? Keep up the great work!

    Re: Using powder for smoothies
    by Bulk Herb Store on Feb 14, 2014

    Hello, I am so glad that you like the products! It makes us very happy to be able to satisfy our customers! As for the Berry Herbal Brew, you could use it as a powder and it would be great for you, however, it wouldn't be the optimum way of taking it because it is not getting fermented. Thanks!

Mold?
by Melissa Ellis on Jan 23, 2014

Made the berry herbal brew a week ago.... It now has mold sitting on the top. Is this normal?? Or do I need to throw it out and start over? Thanks.

    Re: Mold?

    Hello, Here are the instructions Shoshanna gave in the description: "You can expect a small amount of mold to form on top, which is a good sign that the fermenting process is taking place. This is not harmful to your brew and can be skimmed and discarded." Thanks!

pomegranate
by Ishshah on Dec 21, 2013

I have estrogen dominance issues. The pomegranate is a source of estrogen. I know from other posts you do not do special orders. If I purchase the ingredients I can from you, and somehow find the others you do not sell individually, would you give the ratios of amounts for the other ingredients, minus the pomegranate, so we could still do this? Thank you for considering this!

    Re: pomegranate
    by Bulk Herb Store on Dec 23, 2013

    Hello,
    Unfortunately we do not give out our recipes or ratios. Sorry!

Wow!!! This stuff is fantastic!
by Tammy on Oct 24, 2013

Serious Wow! Finally made this after procrastinating for a year to do so. I waited for my grapes to ripen, ordered the BEB herb package, got out my frozen blueberries that we harvested in June and boy was it worth it! My husband says he will pay closer attention to our grape crop next year. But I am going to have to make this with another grape source this was so good. Bless you and your work, we are very thankful satisfied customers!!!

sugar to use
by tricia on Aug 25, 2013

can coconut sugar or evaporated cane juice be used in this brew or is white sugar necessary?

    Re: sugar to use
    by Bulk Herb Store on Aug 27, 2013

    Hello,
    White sugar is necessary for the fermentation process of the Berry Herbal Brew. Thanks!

Pregnancy and nursing
by Hannah on Apr 29, 2013

I am the mother of a nursing 2 month old. I understand that when fermented the brew has some alcohol in it. Do you drink this while pregnant or nursing? Do you let your children (i have 4 other children, ages 10, 8, 4, and 3) drink a little? I drink kombucha and let my kids drink also. Does it have more alcohol than kombucha?

    Re: Pregnancy and nursing
    by Bulk Herb Store on May 2, 2013

    It will become alcoholic the longer it brews. It is safe for children after the "fresh brew" period of 3 weeks, but it is not recommended for children after this. The same recommendation applies to pregnant or nursing women.

question

Can I use the brew mix during pregnancy?

Using Concord Grapes
by Cindy on Mar 9, 2013

You said if you don't have concord grapes to use blueberries. What if you have another seeded grape (can remember which kind)? Should I use the grapes & blueberries. Maybe 2 parts blueberries and 1 part grapes, instead of 2 parts grapes & 1 part blueberries since they aren't concord grapes? Or just use all blueberries?

    Re: Using Concord Grapes
    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 26, 2013

    I would just stick with the blueberries! Concord are the absolute best for this recipe and any other kind is not going to be quite what you need.

hard to find grapes
by cortney on Jan 14, 2013

I an having a hard time finding concord grapes. Would the health benefits be the same with organic grape juice or a different type of grapes?

    Re: hard to find grapes
    by Bulk Herb Store on Mar 29, 2013

    The whole concord grapes are the best, as the skins are rich in nutrients, however if you can't find them, your next best choice would be blueberries.

Must Be Concord?
by Anonymous on Aug 30, 2012

I am having the hardest time trying to find concord grapes. Can I use another variety of red grapes? Simple table grapes with seeds for example or will that ruin the effect of the brew?

    Re: Must Be Concord?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Mar 1, 2013

    We don't really recommend any other grape because the concord grape is the best to use but if you absolutely can't find any then blueberries can be substituted in.

Helps with Heart Problems
by Linda on Feb 18, 2010

I had read the book The Vision a few months ago. And just the other day I placed an order for some Berry Brew. My husband also had 3 stents placed in his heart unexpectedly two months ago. I am so glad that I ordered the Berry Brew -- it will become part of our daily diet! Thank you for all the information you provide at the Bulk Herb Store that enables me to take control of my and my family's health.

Helps Hard Working Man
by Mike and Cyndi on Oct 1, 2009

My husband and I have been drinking a couple of ounces of our Berry brew at night for about three weeks now. As I was stirring the next batch the other day and silently wondering if I should budget another order of the mix, my husband came into the room and remarked that he recognized that smell.

He told me that he is sure that the Berry Brew is working for him. My husband is in his mid 60's and does construction and maintenance work. He
told me that he had been up and down ladders and steps all day long and didn't have the aches and pain in his knees and hips that would be normal for him after this much ladder work. He also seems to have more stamina and energy.

The effects on him are noticable. I think that I will continue to order the blend and keep it on hand for my busy man! Thanks for a great product!

Tastes Good
by Glenn and Bonnie on Sep 9, 2009

Thank you for all you do to offer information on health and healing.

I started my first Berry Brew 3 weeks ago. I couldn't find grapes with seeds so I used 2 quarts of my homemade grape juice. I didn't have a gallon glass jar so I used my 3 gal carboy with an airlock. I corked 2 bottles of the brew today for my pregnant daughter and friend and then put the airlock back in the carboy and will let the rest brew for a while. Of course (we) had to have some and were really pleased with it! And it is quite tasty!

We found out this last week that my mother-in-law has cancer and we are going to offer this Berry Brew to her. It may be too late to help, but it can't hurt either. I am going to be ordering more and will keep a supply on hand. I have grapes with seeds now for my next batch.

Please, take a moment and comment on this product.

Wow, unbelievable! I placed my order at 9:30am on Wednesday, and it was delivered 5:30pm on Thursday. That is just 32 hours!!

I am always pleased with the products i receive. This time I got more Herbal Berry Brew (will be our 5+ gallon), and the mild Herban Earth bag -- very sturdy and well constructed. Looking forward to using the bag, and as i do it will remind me to pray for the missionaries who made it.

Oh, and I got six bottles with droppers. Good size and just what i needed.

Thank you - a lot!
