Default "kosher" brewery closes

Hey, this really sucks...Since I began brewing, I've kept my close Orthodox Jewish friend in mind and have kept all my equipment separated so as to keep it "kosher." Short of having it blessed, he's confirmed it's kosher and suitable for him. (This has been challenging!) I recently received a call from his wife that he passed away, having lost his short battle with cancer. The brevity of his battle was shocking and things have been tough. Of all my friends, he appreciated beer the most. This bites.

That was very nice of you to take the special effort to make home brew for him. Sorry to hear of your loss.

That was a real class act to go through the trouble to keep things kosher on his account. Im sorry to hear of that. Cancer is a scary ordeal, especially when it takes a life so fast.

My condolances to you and his family, as well.

Brew something that he would have liked in his honor.
