Trivia: St. Brigid of Ireland Turned Bathwater into Beer

Jesus wasn't the only person who performed the feat of turning water into alcohol.

St. Brigid of Ireland transformed her bathwater into beer for a visiting (and presumably very thirsty) clergyman.

of the ttime it would be called smalll beer.

Basically people drank very weak beer as it was sterile and safe as opposed to the water which was filthy.

So her bathwater probably tasted the same as that crappy brew.

We've done that. Takes about two weeks to brew some good beer, though. And you wouldn't want to do it in a bathtub, though you could. A good carboy is way better.
