Hopefully 12 years of Catholic School was good for something....
Oh Great Granter of Grain and Healer of Hops,
Please grant a gentle and warm Spring in the northern regions
to fill out the stock and the grain with your maltable bounty.
Make the summer cool and balanced and free from pesky varments
like mites and molds in your hop growing regions.
May your starches, your humolones and Spirit of Yeasts be with us
for all of our days.
