Is it ok to brew beer if I don't have a beard ??
I have seen numerous posts of brew days and noticed that even though only a small portion of the general population has beards it seems to be a mandate for home brewers ....... Any theories on this ?

You need to have at least a goatee, that way when you stick your head in the bucket to smell your beer, you'll catch a little krausen in it. Chicks dog krausen, man....

No it is not. Begin growing one immediately, and in the meantime be sure to buy a fake beard to get you by.

Sure you can brew beer without a beard....but I wouldn't recommend it :D

I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that it is required to have some kind of facial hair to homebrew. If you don't, you are tempting the fates and could end up with skunked, zombie inducing swill that even your old Uncle Phil wouldn't drink. I hear even yooper wears a fake mustache on brew day.

Tread carefully man.

But you can't ride a recumbent bicycle without one!

I am bald and wonder if a toupee would satisfy the hair requirement for homebrew..... guess I could strap it to my chin during the brew session.....

Like so many things, the answer is not so simple.

The beard is only useful for attracting brew fairies, without which, you can only Lager.

So if you are making an ale, a beard is necessary, unless you want gnomes stealing your bear, of course.

Buy this now! We'd hate to see you get fined for brewing without the beard.
