Default Do you like to cook?

I have a theory that a lot of homebrewers are people that also like to cook. They like the process of creating the brew as much as the brew itself. Or maybe if they don't like to cook, they like making things.

Well, we do have a whole forum titled "Cooking and Pairing."

Just sayin'...

I love to cook, especially outside on the grill. There's nothing like standing around with a brew while creating something else to enjoy.

IIRC there's a couple of threads on here where we've shared basicsally a resounding yes to your theory. In fact I came to homebrewing through my love of cooking, and good beer.

But also I think the fact that we have a huuuge section on cooking and paring should give it away as well....there are a few of us who are seriously into it.

I think I pretty much have an equal number of brewing and cooking related threads...or pretty close. Here's a few.

Holy cow...I was only kidding, but I didn't realize I had so many food threads on here.

Thanks for the responses. I've seen some of the food threads, and I knew a lot of people were into cooking (I made someone's salsa-brats recently, awesome). Just yesterday I was recommending home brewing to someone who doesn't cook, or grill much, and it dawned on me that the chances of that person actually staying with home brewing, despite his enjoyment of beer, were not as great in my mind because he doesn't cook. Also, I just was curious if the people who specifically didn't like to cook might be people who were woodworkers, or craftspersons.

I've noticed a lot of non-cooks seemed to be a little confused by some of the more "simple" seeming aspects of our hobby....like realizing that they don't need to buy that 20 dollar strainer from the LHBS, that the 5 dollar one from the cooking section of the gorcery or department store will work just fine..

But I have noticed a few brewers who have never cooked before deciding to enter the kitchen and try some cooking as well based on stuff on here, and the realiziation that brewing is just cooking liquid.

Not that I dunno how to cook, I am just not fond of it. I can re-heat like a pro but that isn't very tastey.
