This is really cool. Can't wait to hear how it turns out.

Sounds like fun. Why don't you let her pick what she want to brew?

Keep us posted on how it goes.

Back in January I made a girl help bottle my smoked IPA on a third date. Six months, five batches, and lots of craft beer later she's still around!

Good Luck!!!

She's supposedly got a whole kit, just hasn't done a brew since last fall I have my own though I'll need to acquire a sparging kit if she doesn't have one.

Was at a party and we had hit it off, but she announced she had to go and this was the first idea that rolled out of my mouth. We shall see

Not, I will call you?

Not, How about dinner and a movie?

But instead, You wanna make some beer next Saturday?

And she said yes! Totally cool.

See, I made it through the whole post without one tasteless sparging comment.

sparge is a term for rinsing, basically washing the sugars from the grains

you could do BIAB with a paint strainer bag found at any hardware store if you don't have lauter tun
