Book Text:

Where wus I, oh yeah
sometime after I got away
from that Ogre who had
captured me (so he thought,
but I had really tricked
him into taking me safely
into his town so I could
learn what they knew about
brewing) I remembered their
comments on Boot ale and
Skunk Breath Ale . . .

There was this one fat ogre
there trying to convince a
young cleric that his town
wus safe. I noticed the
amounts of foodstuffs they
had collected and a huge
list the lass had unrolled
(and covered yards and
yards of ground. I think my
friend Catbik got lost
somewhere in that list when
he saw a gadjet on the



ground nearby.

I was too busy hauling my
notes and samples on not
too steady feet away from
where the ogre guards
patrolled when I noticed
the ogre squeezing his
beans into a bottle and the
thought did occur to me,
mayhap I can return the
favor to the Ogres and
learn to make a good brew
from beans. They do have a
potent after effect, but
I'd normally only consider
them for flavorings
normally.
But ogres know what they
like, and if it's something
that keeps me and my kin
off the menu, then I'm all
for it. By Brell I realized
I had talked myself into a



working on a new recipe,
when was I going to find
the time?

(ink color changes) I found
these notes when I
discovered a box of my
submissions to the Gnomish
publishers. How dare they
not return all my brewing
notes! How dare I not
remember! How did I forget?
Guess I'll have to blame
you know who, yeah that
one, Brell's side kick.

Didn't get smited and my
shoes are still on the
right feet and my beard
hasn't changed.

Yep no changes.
That him.




Anyway I hied myself off to
the druids of Faydwer to
see about collecting all
sorts of legumes for my
work.

I found steeping the coffee
beans with gnomish spirits
and honey made a nice
elixir that made things
move slower around you and
talking to excited gnomes a
very easy task. Have to
sell this stuff to the
ambassadors dealing with
the gnomes. Put them in the
right mindset now won't it?

Two handful of beans ground
and then steeped in hot
water. Added to Gnomish
spirits and honey or a good
sugary syrup of equal
measure. 2 cups of sugar



per flask of water in a pot
will make a decent sweet
syrup. Mix and strain out
the grounds and store in a
dark bottle.

Catbik says it's good with
milk and an extra shot of
gnomish spirits. When he
stops bouncing around like
a well overexcited gnome
I'll ask how it tastes.
