Subject: The Lammas how do you make merry?

Since Lammas-day is the traditional thanksgiving day for the grain harvest, a sort of English Festival of Weeks, something to do with grain is appropriate, especially BEER! BEER! BEER!

The agricultural calendar is a little different in the U.S., it is true, due to different climates and different default "corn" here. To me that just means we get to party twice!

Well. T in OK, as I understand it, Lammas is more of a "first fruits" festival, celebrating the early harvest; in the USA this would include corn (maize type), berries, you know, the stuff you can get at a roadside farmer's stand. There are perhaps some grains availabl in the beginning of August, but if you know anything about brewing, you know that some fermentation time has to be figured into the schedule. That's why the Germans invented Oktoberfest. Of course, if you really Like drinking green beer (that's green as in unripe, not the color), go ahead. But don't be too far from the bathroom; the "cleansing" effects of green beer are famous, and could well turn your Lammas feast into a rite of purification. Have fun, hollowfox.

Oops, sorry. I thought hitting the stop button actually stopped the broadcast. If somebody could clean up the mess, I'd appreciate it.
