Teach a man to fish and all that.

Anyway, life's too short to hoard brew. If you make beer at another man's house, it's his beer, IMO. I brew often enough and well enough people seek me out for beer. Who cares? If I give away enough cheap beer, it'll come back to me. Why would be you be cheap with your friends?

I have an older family friend who has trouble thinking sometimes. I have given him wort/beer, last year I gave him 20gallons of wart and the last time he showed up on brew day with dirty carboys, after I told him 5 times "the carboys better be clean". When I get to be 75y/o I wonder who will brew for me? Looking back 20 gallons was too much to give away, for that I am a jerk.

Finally got a reply back from the guy. Nothing set as of yet. He's working or something and busy, but looking at trying to set a date for next weekend. Mind you this is going slower than 90-minute boil! I'm thinking next weekend would only be dinner with family etc. From there, set recipe and when to brew.
Rereading this......It sounds like a courtship! Ugh.... I already went through that once with my wife.

I'm not sure where Willard is, but if it is close to Portland you can come by our club and brew some Sunday. We teach around 5 people to brew a year. Use our equipment. We'll show your friend how. We only have 2 steadfast rules though. First, if it's your brew you must be there for bottling day. Second rule, leave a 6 pack for the club to try/critique.

I wouldn't over think it or stress about it. Let him make the effort to get with you and set those things up for when it works for you. You've put the ball in his court and now its his turn to return it. Since you've already put it out there, if he's serious about it he will make the attempts to make it happen. Just my 2 cents.

Got an e-mail from him today. He had talked about having family come over for dinner and chit chat, etc. Fine. My problem is patience. Forget dinner, just want to brew. Well, got an e-mail from him Monday evening. He was in Vancouver for a meeting or something and picked up ingredients! Well, alright man. There's a start. He says he's really excited. So, now my part of bargain of setting aside time to get him into it. Though this weekend I'll be doing a lot of wrench turning on our rigs! I can't help but get excited now!

Willard is in the Gorge! Between up the Little White Salmon, between White Salmon and Carson. 20 minutes from any post office or store! Well, it's funny. Keep pointing him other directions as well. He's finding out there are quite a few people he's talked with, and that I know. That brew. So I think he's quite excited.

Okay everyone. Update. Ugh...This guy and his family are super nice. Loved hanging out with them on brew day at their house. Problem is: he kind of has this flex/work from home thing going on. We were there on a Saturday almost 6 weeks ago. Beautiful day. They have goats and chickens. 3 boys. Nice house. 10 acres. So all in all, this guy gets phone calls for work. Also the freakin' goats were pregnant and just as we started the boil, one decided to deliver. So...ugh. Then we were chilling the wort to pitch the yeast. He got a phone call. By now, a 2.5 - 3 hour extract brew day has now turned into something like 5 or 6 hours. Granted we showed up and they had crustless quiche (gluten free) and corn bread, etc. Bsed for an hour or so.
I brought my bucket for fermenting in. Brought cleanser and all that stuff. Long story short. he wanted to use mason jars. Why not? point is whatever works for him. So 2 eeks later, gave him my bottling bucket. Then his wife asked him if he was sure mason jars would work. So he checked it out on-line. So had to get some bottles. I had about 24 spare bottles. Some 22 oz. and 12 oz. So I told him 2 weeks in primary. then we bottle. Well, 2 weeks is up. It's now working on middle of week 4 since. So 6 weeks. No sign if he's bottled yet. It's been hard to connect for one thing. We see each other on Sundays for Mass and then we chit chat via e-mail. He's probably tired of hearing from me about whether he's bottled or not. Dragging on. this guy is way too busy. he says he enjoyed it, so that's good. problem is, he hasn't bottled yet!

You can lead a horse to water but cannot make him drink. I would not stress over it and brew some for yourself.

That is exactly how I handled this situation.

Coworkers husband came to my house, he bought $12 bucket with lid.

We brewed twice that day and he is scheduled to come over this weekend and bottle it.
I have him hooked though, he paid for my ingredients and I gave him an older brass ball valve for an igloo cooler that he has.

Our brew club has doubled in size!
