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.".
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.
