Im pretty new to the site but it hasnt taken long to see thread after thread of worried people with an endless variety of concerns.....
So I figured id give people something lighter and enjoyable to post about to clear the air a little.

Whats your favorite brewing memory? Be it something you did on your first batch years ago that you now laugh at, or that one time you proudly but accidentally gave a buddy some bottle bombs. Maybe even just your first tasty homebrew....whats your story?

Lmao I see this has gone nowhere in 2 months. I figured at least write mine....

2 favorite memories would have to be either A) Winning my homebrew club's best beer of the month with my 2nd beer ever(Sweet Gale Elderberry Pale Ale@ 8 abv)

or B) Brewing my 4th of July IPA with one of my best friends before he shipped over seas, he's a Marine and just flew into Afg yesterday.

I brewed with my dad for the first time 2 weeks ago. We made a fathers day brew that is a summer solstice clone. Was an awesome day.

1986. First time my mom had one of my homebrews. "Wow, tastes like beer!"

my favourite moment was when I brewed a 5 gallon batch and took it to my mates in a barrel and we drank the lot in 2 days

Not been brewing long, so thus far, my best memory is my 5y/o trying to operate my wing capper while I hold the bottle on the floor to keep it from falling over as he's in the pushup position, bouncing up and down. He was only able to cap a few, but at least he got some capped!

I still remember my 1st brew. The OS lager kit that came with my Cooper's micro brew kit. When it'd been in the fridge & ready to drink,my wife raised her glass. Love lights on high beem,a big smile on her face. He's rounding third base,second base trying to steal. He makes a break for it! Holy cow,I think he's gunna make it...gooooooaaaallll!! She loved it. Good times.
It came from a song that describes our first time many years ago;

The day John Maier tasted my Rye IPA and said "this is the flavor I've been looking for". A month later he was brewing it at Rogue.
