Ever since I went AG, everyone wants to come over and watch me brew. However, I think I might actually be turning people AWAY from homebrewing because of all my fancy gadgets and such. They rarely want to get involved, but they really enjoy watching the whole process in motion. I try to explain (over and over) that my rig is much more complex than it has to be in order to make beer...it just works for me, and it allows me to use all grain rather than extract (and another discussion about malt extract ensues). Fortunately, I'm brewing 15 gallon batches, so my friends can have homebrew whenever they like!
