Two recent articles on the family aspects of homebrewing came up recently:
- Lifehacker discusses "Homebrew with Your Kids to Demystify Alcohol"
- They also link to Wil Wheaton's discussion of how he and his son bottle beer.
For the brewing scientists here at RSB, brew day has always been a social event. We plan a day around getting together with friends (some who don't homebrew . . . yet,) bringing ingredients, equipment, snacks and (usually) potluck lunch or dinner. It becomes an excuse to get together and visit, while cleaning, arguing about yeast, cleaning, measuring, cleaning, waiting for the wort to boil, and cleaning.
Its all about good times.
