I just had to share this story with you folks.

I was walking my 8 year old daughter to the bus stop this morning. As we passed the new, 2 car garage that the neighbors are building, she remarked on how much larger it is than our (1 car) garage. She said, "Like, FOUR people could brew beer in that at the same time!" It brought a little tear to my eye to see that she'd learned so well what garages are really for.

Hehe that's awesome Paul. I can only imagine the brewing stories she's telling at school :-)

I still have not had the nerve to enter a "yeast experiment" with my son in the science fair.

Out of the mouth of "babes" or "babies"?

Psalms 8:2 Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings hast thou ordained strength because of thine enemies, that thou mightest still the enemy and the avenger.

Last night my three year old was looking in the kitchen cupboard for something and saw some yeast slants sitting on the shelf. She calls me in the kitchen and says "Daddy! Daddy! You use these to make beer! I have to be careful not to touch them!" Such a beautiful little girl...

Yeah, three's a cool age. My four year old girl routinely breaks out her "princess" lawn chair and sits with me in the garage while I brew. She really digs it.

That's a great story, Paul. One day a few months ago, it was the day after I had brewed in my kitchen and the smell of hops still lingered. My five year old walked in to the house after school and said "It smells great in here."

I DID help my daughter enter a yeast experiment into last year's science fair - complete with photos of cells on a counting grid grown under various conditions with various media. Honorable mention. Some jackass kid playing with insulation won. Where's the science in that?

(This year, she entered a "solar house" experiment using an immersion chiller as the solar collector. 2nd place. Triumph in that they finally placed an experiment with brewing equipment in it, but disappointed in their view of what constitutes a good science fair project. You'd think energy conservation was more important than food production...)

A few months ago, my daughter ( nine ) thought I was acting grouchy. She said to mom, " I think daddy needs a beer!" She was right. Was that some monk who talked about things not going so well without beer?
