As some of you may be aware I have a strange obsession with old beers styles and trying to recreate historical styles.

My next idea is to try and create the style Mum. "This is a style originally from Germany but popular in Britain from 1660 to early 19th Century.".[1]

Does anyone know of any sources for this, any contemporary accounts or even some old recipes for this beer style. So, far I have a one line metion on wikipedia and a link from there shared here.

==== EDIT ====

Found a couple of other interesting links I need to properly investigate:

This one has a good historical look at the style: https://witteklavervier.nl/en/history/mum

This contains some guide to a recipe, I think given the bad translation and my terrible schoolboy German: http://www.kruenitz1.uni-trier.de/cgi-bin/getKRArticles.tcl?tid=005_15+opt=1-0

NB. I do not mind if the sources are in English, German or Dutch.

On the "Brew Files" Podcast there were two episodes with an author who wrote a book on historic german beer styles. Maybe he can help you?!

He also has a blog where he references the "Brunswik Mumm" http://dafteejit.com/2016/01/historic-german-beers-that-did-not-conform-to-the-reinheitsgebot/

Edit: In the comments of this blog post they are talking about the recipe of the Mumm: http://dafteejit.com/2018/02/my-new-book/
