Thar She Blows

Yeasty foam spattered
All around the fermenter
Damn the clogged airlock!

Written by Captain Hops.

References: The fermentation of my Irish Red got overly rambunctious, clogged up the airlock, and blew the lid off my fermentation bucket. It was not a pretty sight. Or smell.

No Foam

Pull on the beer tap,
Watch the wonderful beer pour.
No foam on the floor.

Beer foam on your face
makes you look like Santa Claus
You’re too drunk to know

I can sense your gaze
from across the crowded bar
say hello with beer

The sad hiss of foam
Once plentiful fountain sighs
The keg runneth dry
