How to make your branne water, wherewithall you shall use to dye red.

Ye shall take a hat full of wheat branne, and take so much water as will go into thre smal kettles, so let it haue a welling or two on the fire. Then poure it into a fatte, then take two other kettlefuls of water and warme it, and put it therein also, but first stirre it well, and so couer it wel. The first day you must stirre it often, and then it will be the better, then shall ye let it stand foure or fiue dayes till it waxe the riper, and which will be the better for your purpose, and then ye may occupie as yee shall see cause.
