    Now I understand why it was such a nice complement to the alehoof.  
It was a great hot-weather beer, and I'm planning to make it again this 

Ingredients for 5 gallons
7 lbs.      pale malted 2-row barley
3 lbs.      malted oats
1 oz        dried alehoof  (boil for 60 minutes)
1/4 oz      dried yarrow (boil for last 5 minutes)
Wyeast liquid   Thames Valley yeast
    Knowledge is never wasted, nor is the time to acquire it.
