Default Start 'em young!

This is a pic of my 7wk old son helping me bottle an old ale. I tried to get him to face the camera but he didn't want anything to do with that. I think he's hooked!

Would've been nice if the photo rotated right...

Mine are all grown now...but I still miss the babies now & then. Siompler times when they still looked up to me. Then they grow up & it's a whole different ball game. The boys start taking to mom more than dad. So get'em young is right...

That's a great photo, even sideways! Thanks for showing us- it's awesome.

He doesn't look like much help, though, lazy little bugger.

Just wait till he's old enough for that half millisecond you ain't looking he's made his own additions to everything sanitized or dropped something in the mash tun lol. We tried a new recipe and my 6 year old expert kept telling me I was doing it wrong. My dad was rolling on the floor.

Thanks everyone. My buddies tell me that he'll soon want to be making the hops additions. Until then I'm just content with the fact that I have managed to find the time to brew with a 9 week old son in the house. Although I definitely used up a lot of my hobby-equity when I did an all grain batch when he was 3 weeks old...
