I saw this other post and it got me thinking - how old was everyone when they started? I'm 19, which is pretty young, but I'm sure there are others on here younger than me. I know it's a touchy topic for some people - and I just can't wait until I turn 21 so I can actually taste my beer instead of giving it away

EDIT: I actually made my 1st batch when I was 18, but that was just a few months ago

Had my first beer when I was 6 or 7 . A PBR ( purely blissful refreshment). Hated it, then learned to love it somewhere along the way. Started brewing at 35 with a Mr. Beer kit. Didn't try again until last April . Now, at 37, I'm an addicted homebrewer. There's worse things to be.

Sixteen. I had just inherited my grandmother's 1965 Corvair convertible and was on a double date with my best friend and two cheerleaders. We went...wait a minute...what's the question?
