My older Brother is thinking of starting a brewing hobby. He knows I've enjoyed the hobby and been successful at it so I was wondering if any of you guys have a Brother that brews and if so, is he your older brother or younger Brother?

One of my older brothers brews but not the other one. He started about 3 years before me and has been a good sounding board to bounce ideas off of.

I think we bore our family when we get together because we basically only talk about beer.

My little brother lives in Michigan, I live in Tennessee. When He came to TN and got his first taste of homebrew...he was hooked. So now he spends a fortune on equipment and brewing, just like his big brother...

No. I have two brothers. Neither of them brew. They don't even particularly like beer, but at least my younger brother is open to trying a wide variety of different beers.

My older brother(+8yrs) brews and he got me started. He has brewed for ~6 years and I had brewed with him a hand full of times. When I got a real job and a house where I could brew, I started up. He introduced me to this forum and helped me decide on all my initial equipment.
Since then (~1.5yrs) I I have really gotten into it and have even gotten him to adopt some of my techniques. In some ways the student has become the master. Because he has 6 kids, I have alot more time and less responsibilities than him so I brew alot more often. We collaborate on brews and we talking about ideas and techniques.
It is awesome, and it has really helped us re-connect. With the large age gap between us we had not been that close in the past. We were living apart for so long at college and for work. We are closer now than ever before.

If your brother is interested I suggest you have him over for a brew day and really walk him through every step. If he wants to start that is great, it could be something you could really bond over. Brewing is such a big part of my life and it is nice to share that with my brother. We are so different and don't see eye to eye on much but it has been great for us.

Just talking to my brother about this the other day. Said he always wanted to brew, but never could find the time. He's got a new house that doesn't need as much work as the old one, so maybe I can get him to start.
