Default So i sat down and wrote two HBT limericks

There once was a yeast who made booze
So bored with his job, took a snooze
He was roused and awakened
Afrer he was just shaken
And made a gravity in the one-zero-twos

When a brewer decides on brew
He might not have but a clue
On how high he should mash
Or when he should crash
So Revvy he must come to you

Dont ask me why I do the things I do...I couldnt tell you.
-Jefe-

I applaud your efforts and then some
your verbage and prose, so handsome
but if you've got time
to sit down and rhyme
why not crush more grain and brew some?

...minus some points for 3x "some"'s

I'm going to my tap; won't you follow?
Some wonderful brew we will swallow
The big problem is
I keep having to wiz
How I wish that my legs were both hollow.

There once was an online brew forum,
You'd think that they'd rather just pour 'em.
They spent too much free time, in conjuring rhyme,
It was all I could do, to ignore 'em!

I'll be putting a bathroom in downstairs this spring by the bar. This is getting hung on the door for sure!!

How about a haiku:
Bottled beer is good
But from a tap it's better
In your belly is best
