Default Brewing with the family!

Had a late brewday..... started around 8pm. (ok brewnigt)

Cooking up a red rye IPA. Not as red as I wanted but I will fix that next time.

Had a blast with the kids helping and my youngest helped the most! My little 4 year old boy wanted to help the most and not watch Monsters University!!! Probably the best brew I have had yet. Everything went great except one boilover because I was trying to get a picture of the boil and all the hops.

Decided to move the brew to my patio this time. It was only about 40deg out and crazy windy. I will never brew in the driveway again. This setup was way better!!!

A family that brews together stays together!!


Putting the prego wife to work!

Hops anyone???

Patience is a virtue!!

mmmmmmm grain

Steam on a cold night!

A bit after the boil over, time for some hops!!

Nothing better then a night enjoying two amazing things. Family and brewing, and the kids have a blast helping!!!

I am done now, time for a movie and bed!
