Default I made a new brewer today

My daughter and son-in-law gave me a seasonal recipe book for Christmas today, they got it from an lbs in upstate NY where they live. He was saying how he was looking at the starter kits in there but didn't really want to spend the money on one. Then it dawned on me! My old Coopers micro-brew fermenter has been sitting in the closet unused for over a year. I collected it up, all the accessories, and 30 Coopers PET bottles and gave them to him. He is all excited to get home and start his brewing obsession! I'm one proud papa that he wants to start brewing, I foresee some fun times ahead!

Very nice to hear. It feels good to get others into something you personally enjoy. WAY TO GO!

Thanks! It was pretty cool seeing his excitement.

I got two friends into brewing after they had some bottles of my home brew. Their girlfriends were asking me what kit to buy them as a surprise for Xmas as they keep talking about brewing. I can see future brewing sessions happening

That Cooper's micro brew FV is one tough lil unit. I still use mine. Cool that you two will have something to share in the times ahead.

Sweet. Our niece's boyfriend seemed to like my brown ale and had lots of questions, so I sent him away with an extra copy Papazian's book.
