Default at hospital having kid, thinking of brewing

How bad is this of me? I'm at the hospital, we'll be having a baby boy soon, and i'm looking around to see what free stuff can be used for brewing. Some nice graduated containers i spotted, maybe for yeast washing???

LOL! Congrats man! I'll be in the same situation some time in July and I'm already planning what beer to make to commemorate the occasion.

Who knows, if all goes well you might get to cut the cord and change the first ooey-gooey black mess. Betcha won't be thinking about brewing then!

Huge congrats out to you. Enjoy the moment because it will rock your world. Brewing can take a timeout.

Congratulations. Thinking about brewing is good practive because with a new child in the home, the only brewing you may be doing for a while will be in your head.

Hehe I remember those days. Thinking about doing something just turns into wishing for sleep. Congrats on the new little one however. They are a blast in no time.

Congrats! Grab an oxygen tank if you see one!! Seriously though, expect some time away from your hobby... I had my 1st baby a month ago & haven't brewed in 5 weeks, but I've purchased tons of stuff preparing for the next brew. Time to begin planning & building with your time @ home. Just don't forget to enjoy the family time too!! Next week will be the 1st brewday in 6 weeks - Saison time!!

You'll just have to settle for some good SD microbrew for awhile. Which hospital are you using down there??

Don't listen to these guys -- you can still make time for brewing! Kids at that age don't do anything, and particularly if it's your first, your wife will probably be monopolizing the kid's time anyway. Brewing is a lot easier to justify to the wife than going out to a bar and drinking!

Nor would I worry too much that you're thinking about brewing. In a couple hours, you'll have MORE than enough to do... But the whole "waiting in the delivery" room at this point is boring. [Not for her, it isn't, but it is for you.]

And, of course, congrats!
