I once heard of version of John Barleycorn where the description of the ale making process is so complete that you actually could brew beer just by following the verses. Does any one know of such a version? Or was it just a fanciful notion?

Gee, if I were looking for a song like that, I'd go to Ed Silberman...or maybe Dick Holdstock.

Seems to me I've heard a song like that, too. I'll keep looking.

Oh, Hi, Ed!!

Dear Mr. Ed,

Your "history" of fifteen plus years on Mudcat....leads to a dark hole.

"John Barley Corn" and his friends, can spin i to "Bill and Alcohlics Anonymous...or home-distilling receipes. Jack London wrote a dandy little, short novel by that name.

Check in the old "use-net" files....and current Russian ex-pats. Engineers prefer column distillation...craftsmen are drawn to the "pot stills" and sml batch refinements.

The Russian method will produce fuel for an automoile followed by a splitting, three day hangover.

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

...and if you try to brew this stuff, Ed, don't give me any at camp....

You realize, of course, that according to the Reinheitsgebot, beer is to be made of water, barley, and hops. Can you make a song out of a recipe like that?

Can you make BEER out of a recipe like that?

Are you looking for "Professor Barleycorn", the version that includes verses like this one?

Just like his mother earlier, he soaked and swelled with pride,
But when he stuck his toe out he was roasted and he died.
The malting process needs the root appropriately short
To optimize the amylase that helps create the wort.

If so, then you can find it on my web site.

Howard Kaplan -- Your song isn't recipe. One couldn't make beer by following the verses in your son. But I can see how someone's imagination might gone from the technical details in your lyrics to the notion that there's "a version so thorough that it's actually a recipe." Thank you.
