I got my partner at work interested and his brew kit arrived today. He is ready to go and looking forward to brewing this weekend.

Default Plans?

So what are your plans? I am hosting a brewing event at a Nursing Home! I almost lost the whole thing as the person in charge thought that there would be alcohol and all... when I told him that there will be no alcohol in it for days and that I'm taking the bucket when I leave, things went fine.

So what are your plans for the day?

Has anyone done this before?
Every time there is something like that for home brewing I have to work.
I've got 3 guys at work that want to get into home brewing. That would have been a perfect day.

Teach a Friend to Brew Day is a bit of a misnomer as it takes usually three days to brew, separated by a couple weeks. You'd have to have your friend over to brew, then come back over to transfer to the secondary, and then return again for bottling. If you're teaching someone, you want to teach them the right way, don't you?

Not trying to kill the fun. In fact, I think it is a good idea, but why not just make it all the time? "Oh, you like homebrew and want to learn? Well, sorry, you'll have to wait until Nov. 4th."

Patrick: I can see your point about the different steps we have to take, brewing, racking, racking, bottling, etc, but if you planned ahead...hmmm....

I bottled a batch last night, but that has no bearing on my plan below...

Here's my plan for TAFTBD:

1. I have a Kolsh-style Ale in the primary right now that I am planning on racking today.

2. I made a wheat starter yesterday that went off like gangbusters last night.

3. I will be brewing a HW today (surprise!).

4. I'll make another starter on Thurs.

5. On Sat I'll brew another batch (not sure of style yet) ... rack today's HW to the secondary ... and bottle the Kolsch-style ... all the steps in 1 day ! ! !

It just takes some planning ...

(Don't you wish you were going to be here instead of the field?)

...and don't forget to relax and have a homebrew...
