Going to brew a batch with my oldest son on Saturday. Have to go to the local brewing supply and pick up a kit. I started a few months back and really enjoy it and I think he will also. The weather is going to be pretty crappy so it will be a good brew day!! Maybe I will get to steal some of his beer for a change!

Im not really sure what he is going to pick up, he seems to like a darker, maltier style but ya never know. my guess is a October fest type or a wheat beer. He had been saying he wanted to get into home brewing, but with a house and truck payment cash is kinda scarce, so I had an equipment kit sent to his house. With his own stuff my stuff stays my stuff!!! 24 year olds can drink alot of beer!

Yes when I was that old 5 years ago, I could drink a bunch of beers. Even more in college, but that's over and made the switch to drinking good beer in not so large quantities, haha.

The oktoberfest/ marzen is a lager, so you would need to be set up to ferment colder. A good beer would be a porter or stout if he's into darker beers, and you can't mess those up, plus they taste great.

Mine is only two years old so I brew during naptime. Can't wait to teach him the art!

Well he ended up picking out a wheat beer with orange peel and coriander. That was one of the beers I did and it came out great. It should appeal to just about everyone.Saturday did not work out so we are doing it tonite! Might be a late night!
