Anybody ever think about hiring a maid or servant to brew/rack/bottle your beer for you?

This hobby might not be for lazy people.

Lol I am the maid/purchasing department /recipe maker/brewer /janitor/gopher/ label maker/ label installer and all of the other things that go along with it... To me the fun is in the stages and hats to wear at certain times.

If you've ever worked in a brewery, you'll know it's not glamourous at all. You wear rubber boots, have a shovel, and a canoe paddle. And you work hard- it's back breaking work. Brewing is mostly cleaning- mashtuns, boil kettles, pumps, hoses, equipement, etc. Then it's sanitizing. Then it's cleaning again.

If you are the DIY type, you can scratch one together with a little sex. Insert TabA into SlotB, water as needed, put to work 10 yrs later.

Ha... I think I would feel too guilty giving my kids beer brewing chores.

My daughter had a Christmas shopping spree at school (thats what they teach them now) and she bought me the coolest dad beer cooling wrap. She already thinks my favorite thing to do is make and drink beer ... Imagine if she showed up at show and tell trying to teach the other kids how to measure final gravity with the hydrometer?

Yeah, I would be the worst dad in the class.

I think I could talk my wife into it if I let her pick the ingredients once in a while... and maybe even do the bottling on top of the dishwasher door like Revvy suggests. Right now I need to mop my garage floor as I have priming sugar and spilt beer from racking on the floor of the garage. I need to lean out my process, thats for sure.

My kids have bottled many batches for me. It's a great learning event for everyone. There is all sorts of physics, chemistry and biology lessons there, as well as some good hand-on activity. I don't bottle anymore though so not so much for them to do now.

My 15-yr old made a keg of rootbeer a few weeks ago. He pulls that tap at least once a day. His soda tap is the one on the far right.
