Default November 7th, Show a friend how to homebrew day.

Teach a friend to Homebrew!

I have a few friends who love my beer and are interested in brewing. They are considering taking the leap into brewing... I think I'm going to have them over and BREW. Nudging them ever closer to that knifes edge of brewing addiction.

What are your plans?

Nov 7th is SWMBO's 23rd bday.

This Saturday on the other hand is my show a friend how to brew day. Planning on doing a bunch of small all grain batches, should be a great time!

I am confused because November 1 is the first Sunday, the 7th is a Saturday....

Unfortunately, that is a little too far in advance for me to plan, but I am sure football is in order....

I got an email from my LHBS saying it was the 7th, but typically it has been just the first Sunday in November... or maybe it was Saturday.

What ever the case, it's just one more excuse to brew!

Forgot about that! Of course football will be on in the background of brewing, watching my Louisville cards (don't go there) continue to crumble.

Teach a Friend to Homebrew is Saturday the 7th.

I and other member of the Niagara Association of Homebrewers will probably be at Niagara Tradition doing an AG demo.

I am a member of the Michiana Extract and Grain Association (MEGA). We have held an event the last few years. Usually invite friends, grill out, drink etc. Usually get a small handful of random people from the general public as well. We advertise at our LHBS and local pubs.

I'm showing a friend how to brew in 1 1/2 weeks. I am driving down to visit him and we are making a whole weekend out of it!

Try not to overwhelm your friend. I find its easy to gush like a schoolgirl about brewing, trying to barf out everything I have learned in one year on someone who may only be slightly interested. Don't scare them off.

Just get them hooked on something cool, then explain the basic steps and simply answer their questions as their own curiousity takes the wheel.

I was planning on getting my brother-in-law involved on Nov 7 but we decided we can't wait that long!

Gonna make a Newcastle clone this Sunday. I'll have to find someone else to teach in November!
