Since my kegs are full and I have a Blue Moon clone in primary, I'll be helping a coworker do his first brew ever on National Homebrew Day tommorrow, should be a nice IPA. It feels good to recruit some new members to the club

I've just started my strike water to brew with now.

A buddy is comming by and he is going to brew using my equipment and supplies as his first AG.

And he gets to keep the wort.

Cheers

I know of at least three people that are always raving about coming to one of my brew sessions so that they can "see how it's done". Funny thing is, when I call and tell them I'm going to brew, they always seem to be busy......

Well he came, brewed, drank a few brews, and carted off 5.5 US gallons of Hobgoblin wort. And he had a great time doing it. I also had a great time showing him how.
Now we are planning on making this a regular thing. At least the part about brewing together.

Yep, people want to see how its done until the time comes. I have had one friend stop by a couple of times but not from start to finish. I will celebrate this evening with a couple of brews and watch some hockey. My local HBS had 10% off today and I picked up what I needed and will brew tomorrow. Today got too busy. They also have a homebrew club that meets once a month. Glad the Wings won today now its time for Ottawa to finish off the Devils.

Good Day All
