Default What do you eat while brewing?

I thought of this while responding to the thread about brewing in groups or alone. Whenever I brew alone, I just grab whatever as the day goes on or my wife will bring me some fast food while she's out. I have one guy I've brewed with 3-4 times and we usually toss a pack of brats or sausage on the grill and keep it simple like that. Last weekend I brewed with two other guys. one was just watching to learn. The other guy and myself both had our most unorganized brew days to date, and after they left 6 hours later, I'd realized we never ate anything besides the sticky buns my wife made and brought us at around 11. I'm hoping to brew with these guys on a regular basis, but meal time needs to be a part of the brew day as well. So what do you guys all do for lunch while brewing? Particular your group brew days? Keep it simple with brats that you can hold in one hand, have big cookouts with all the sides and everything? Order Pizza to keep it simple?

I like to make a sandwich before I start the brew day OR I have my wife to cook for me. I never liked grilling at the same time as brewing it is just to much to keep track of.

I'm one of those people who literally forgets to eat. When I get busy doing something, I don't even think about food or get hungry.

Bob usually brings me a plate of something around noon if he's around.

I have a beer once the boil starts and the first hops go in. It's funny- I never forget to have a beer!

I don't eat while brewing. At least not usually. I'm with Yoop though, I never forget to drink while brewing!

Definitely a sandwich if its a double batch day. Other than that, I am putting fruit zest (orange, tangerine, grapefruit, etc) in almost all my beers so I have 5-6 zested fruits lying around. Funny, its probably the time I eat the best.

I try not to eat as I brew as the kitchen is tiny. I will eat before I brew, but have a beer or two while brewing.

Interesting. I always picture the majority pulling out their grills and smokers and what not. I too start drinking once the boil starts. Never forget that part.

homebrewmike, mind sharing your pretzel recipe?

I prefer a plate of good cheese and crackers, some olives. Just something that I can pick up easily.

Now that my Electric setup is about finished, I'm picturing a nice Sous Vide steak in my mash tun Pull it out to put a quick sear on it while the wort comes to a boil
