I don't know why more women don't brew- it's a total blast. Maybe it's a perception problem- you know, guys with beer guts slamming brews down. I've totally gotten into this craft beer making, and I'd love to see more of us around here.

The only thing that's intimidating for me is all-grain. Not because it's difficult to brew it, but because of the equipment. You men are always building something and modifying things. I built a poor-woman's lagerator out of a cooler and some styrofoam sheeting, but that's the end of my abilities to use power tools. Buying the stuff ready made is costly, so I don't see that happening soon.

I'd love to meet people in my area who are all-grain brewers, so I can watch and learn. It's tough trying to do it alone, so I'm thankful for this forum.

Nothing is more exciting then making a fantastic beer and watching my husband's(HWMO?) eyes light up when I come up to him and and offer my wares. He likes the beer, too.

In the Old days women were the brewers. Men considered it in line to cooking and they'd rather wrestle, go to war and drink the stuff than brew it. My "History of Ale and Beer" book explains when the corssover occured but I believe I leant it out to someone.

BTW Mandy, one of the brewers at paddockwood ( I believe she's temp. left to go get her degree in brewing chemistry) is female and well:

It is true that many women like to get drunk just like men, but beer is held in a much different light for men. Guys have a certain reverance for beer and take pride in it. Even simply drinking a beer is a proud moment and great achievment.

A lot of women just don't have the right attitude.

Well, that's why it's so hard to meet brewers in my area! The other 4 people in the UP drink Bud Light.
