I love cider, but being a Deutscher, I'll follow the tradition of these German friars and keep drinking beer for Lent. Unlike these Minims (Paulaners) however, I'll keep eating solid food! (The headline is wrong. They weren't 'monks' they were mendicant friars of an order founded by St Francis de Paola in 1469.

Any more detail on this beer?  Would they have halted fermentation as soon as it was alcoholic enough and acidic enough to be preserved, ending up with something like a syrupy session beer?  Or would they have let it keep on trucking all the way to a typical doppel strength?
