You need to have a beard! If not, how will you get good wild yeast to ferment with?!

The beard is a filter. That's the secret

Tread carefully man.

Yes, I have to wear my Groucho nose and fake moustache on brewday, so I fit in.

Of course, technically if you are male and shave periodically, you have a beard. You just need a microscope to see it. That's my story and I'm stickin to it.

It is not optional, you must have a beard. Facial hair, chest hair, back hair, errr.... well you know. No manscaping round the brew pot.

I can't be bothered with shaving all the time. Once a week, max. Anyone who brews isn't going to be your straight-laced clean-shaven pansy, in any case. That's for wine drinkers.
