I helped Alan and most of his neighborhood brew a batch of beer last week. It was great fun and there were some fantastic snacks to be had. It wasn’t really a formal lesson though and more of an ad hoc session. I think one of the guys was a little confused by the process since he was a much more structured learner; something that doesn’t necessarily go well with lots of folks and beer.
It’s probably the 10th time I’ve taught folks how to brew and it’s quite a bit of fun. 2/3rds of the brew days I’ve been involved in this year were teaching gigs. Makes me wonder if the old adage is true: “Those who can’t do, teach.”
Luckily, the do part is a time issue only.
