I'll be brewing up my first lager this weekend! Also on the agenda is kegging my first batch (cream of three crops) and if I'm feeling really motivated bottling my RyePA. I guess I'll also end up washing the yeast from my cream ale too...

I usually feel like having an extra hand around is a good time to try something complex, but then I also wonder whether bringing in an inexperienced 1st-time brewer will be more trouble than it's worth. Like, "Hey, you just, uh, stir this thing for me. That's important. Go on an' stir there."

Whenever I have new brewers over I try to keep it simple. Use equipment I've used successfully in the past and techniques I'm familiar with. I like their first time watching/helping to be as smooth and uneventful as possible. A good example was my buddy just got a new propane burner, and had invited two of his non-brewing friends over to "help" (i.e. drink beer and watch). When he heated up his water to boil in 15mins (instead of the normal hour on his electric stove) he wasn't prepared. His specialty grains were still in the kettle, he hadn't prepped his extract or hops, and was completely taken off guard (he normally brews AG in a 10gal igloo cooler but figured he would keep it "simple" with extract). The buddies just sort of watched as he ran around grabbing supplies and swearing! He quickly got everything under control, but ultimately the buddies just sort of got in the way. Just one new piece of equipment can throw a wrench into a brew day.

Now when some of my brewing buddies come over, then its time to try some new techniques or experiment! They can help out when things get crazy, or offer ideas/tips if things go wrong. In the above situation had the buddies been brewers, one could be assisting with getting out the specialty grains, while another could have been grabbing the extract and 60 min hop addition.

Either way have fun with your brother in town! I always love having new brewers (or soon to be new brewers over) and sharing my passion! I wish I had some friends/family coming over this weekend...It looks like I'll be out on my back porch brewing alone this weekend...

Looking to do 10gal of either a Tripel or BM's Centennial Blonde this Sunday. Not 100% sure which I'll go with yet. Depends whether I can get a couple vials of wlp530 at the LHBS today when I pick up some starsan.

Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.

I've been thinking about making a DIPA due to the lack of hoppy beers on tap, but am waffling because I can probably sneak in another lager or two this season before the temps in the cellar get too high.
