Morning Mead

Gongs chime in my ear.
The pounding, pulsing, painful
morning after mead.

Written by Medsen Fey.

References: Mead is fermented honey. Beer is when you convert the starches of grain to sugars and ferment that.

For those BHD purists that think it would be cheating to publish a mead haiku I offer you this one inspired by the raucous fermentation of my Belgian Dark Strong going on right now:

That’s Entertainment

The yeast do their jobs
In a violent frenzy
Watching the wort churn

Brewer as Matchmaker

Wort meet yeast. Yeast, wort.
So… like… are you two gonna
Get a room or what

Under the Patio Lights

On a chilly night
I watch the wort boil, and
Sample the last batch
