Really no word for "beer, ale" in any Eldarin language?

Did yulda ever authentically include the meaning "beer" like purported here: ? (Not confirmed by the QL indices available to me.)

I am unable to find evidence that yulda ever meant 'beer'.
Nor can I find any words in the QL or GL meaning beer, ale, brew, yeast, or ferment.
A sad oversight, Professor!

There isn't a word for "barley" or "wheat" either. Seems a kenning-style metaphorical compound might be the only option for someone short of this translation.

We do have wheat in Goldogrin,bloss - there is also rye, lhosc, lhosg (Q *lusco?) ; but I don't see how is that going to help us

At least there a word for 'drunk(en)': balfaug (PE13:138), literally 'evil-thirsty'. I was thinking of adding it to the vinya-list in the updated form *ulfaug..

Interesting semantics...

There is iau 'corn', which east of the Atlantic often means barley, less often wheat. Wonderful group by the way. I've followed it for some time, but rarely have the impression I have something to add.

+Hjalmar Holm welcome to the community - there is always something to add!
