4 ( Ireland.)— SIXTH REPORT OF THE COMMISSIONERS [ Excife. irifh Commons country; but, by the Returns made to the Irish Parliament, it appears Jo' App! J7}. 16' that 011 an average of the five years ending 25th March 1795, there were annually made in Ireland 532,852 barrels of Strong, and 199,860 barrels Irifh Commons of Small Beer, and that of Ale and Beer, there were imported 100,084 JuUApp! 38b. 16' barrels, from which deducting 169 re- exported, there remained for home consumption 99,915 barrels j taking these together, and computing two App.' 54< 5. ' barrels of Small Beer to be equal to one of Strong, the total consumption of Ireland, in the year 1795, may be estimated at 732,697 barrels of Appendix, N" 8. Strong Beer. The present consumption may, we think, be computed at an increase of little less than one- half of that quantity, or at 1,099,045 barrels of strong Beer annually; for the manufacture of which ( allowing ibid. one barrel of Malt to every barrel and a half of Strong Beer, which is stated to us as the usual proportion) 732,697 barrels of Malt would be Appendix, N° 3. requisite 3 an amount exceeding the quantity brought to charge in any of the three years ending 5th January 1807. In the opinion which we entertain, respecting the increase of the Breweries since the year 1795, we are further confirmed by the increased importation of Hops that appears to have taken place since that period, irifh Commons The importation of Hops, on the average of five years ending 1795, J° UApp! s45.17' was I4> 135 cwts. per annum. This quantity at 2-^ lb. to each barrel of Appendix, N° 8. Strong Beer, which we understand to be the usual Allowance, would be sufficient for the manufacture of 633,248 barrels, which exceeds the quantity of btrong Beer estimated to have been made in that year by 466 Appendix, N° 9. barrels. The importation of Hops, on the average of five years ending 5th January 1807, was 22,976 cwt. per annum, which, at 24. lbs, to each barrel of Strong Beer, would be sufficient for the manufacture of 1,029,325 barrels, a quantity which the consumption of Beer in 1795, if increased by one- half, would exceed to no greater extent than 70,000 barrels. The proportion of Malt now used in the Distilleries cannot be precisely 46 Gee. in. c. 88. ascertained. The allowance of a Drawback of iod. British per gallon, as a compensation for the Malt Duty, appears founded on the presumption that one barrel of Malt is used for every 12 gallons of Spirits; we are, Appendix, No. 10. however, inclined to think, that one part of Malt to three of Grain, or one barrel of Malt to every 24 gallons of Spirits, approaches nearer to the. proportion actually used. The quantity of Spirits charged with Duty in Ireland on the average of Fifth Report, tw0 years enc} ing 2September 1806, as stated in our Report on the Appendix, N° 22. Distilleries, was - - 3,726,200 Gallons, ibid. To which add exported from the King's Warehouses 6 C4., c c8 Appendix, N° 49. 1 b j Making the Total charged with Duty, and exported from the King's Warehouses - - 4,380,758. If we suppose one- fourth of the Grain used in the manufacture of this quantity of Spirits to have been Malt, and compute 6 gallons of Spirits as the produce of each barrel of Corn, the requisite proportion of Malt would amount to 182,531 barrels; but, as by the acknowledgement of the ibid. Distillers, there appears to have been produced as much more Spirits as Appendix, NJ13. were charged with Duty, and exported from the King's Warehouses, we may estimate the quantity of Malt actually used in the Licensed Distilleries at 365,062 barrels annually, which, added to 732,697 barrels, the esti- • * mated
