I so wanted to ask but it is a prized possessions and I have only met her twice. Super nice hates BMC she is retired and her dad is long gone. I just don't want her to feel like I am trying to get his recipes and claim them for myself (I would never do that) but she seems very guarded of the book. Tim

I really can't think of a reason why she'd say no.

come to her with a recipe and ask if you might be able to see how her dad did it for a few insider secrets. either that or tell her that you found some unique ingredient, like Amber or Brown malt, which may have been more prevalent during her father's time, and you're just looking to see how it was best used. Then again, you could just ask her favorite style and if she'd be willing to share for a brew that would be entered into contests with her father listed as either head brewer or an assistant brewer.

Invite her over to brew and then pitch your yeast in her fermenter.

You're thinking way to much into this. If you really want to be "cool" about it, offer to brew up one of his recipes with her. She'd probably enjoy getting in touch with her father's old hobby that he got so much enjoyment out of.

After I'm gone someday, I would be honored if someone were to brew up one of my old recipes. My grandfather used to brew beer. I have not been able to find any of his recipes but if I did, I would follow it to the "T" and he would be happy for it.

This. If she doesn't want to brew with you (perhaps not as exciting a date for her as for you), tell her you'd be happy to make a batch for her... maybe you could try it together over dinner...
