As long as you're here, you might as well help me out. I'm feeling pretty darn unqualified for the task, seeing as I've never drank a drop of beer in my life.

You should try a little sample of each of their grains. Let's see if any of this stuff is sweet enough for Uncle Chen.


You will receive: 10g 20s


None of this seems to taste sweet enough! What's the deal?


Huh. I guess none of that grain is going to work. Uncle Chen is pretty picky.

Maybe the Grainlord knows where we can find something more... special.

Li Li says: Why is all of your grain so bland?
Grainlord Kai says: The grain we gather needs to be in large quanities for the brewery. But I may know of a grain that would suit your needs.


Li Li states here that she has never drank beer. However, this has been retconned in Pearl of Pandaria, where she not only drinks it, but proves to be experienced enough to brew it too.
