Over the course of those years I have taught hundred of people to brew beer - including some that have gone on to be pros. The ones that I am most proud of - are both of my kids who brew their own beer. Both have an uncanny ability to put together interesting recipes. I never thought that they were paying that much attention! The other (2) - were scouts from our Boy Scout Troop. Other than showing them how to make root beer - for the blue and gold banquet - they 'figured out beer for themselves' - but that is what scouting teaches! They have both thanked me for planting the 'seed' - that you can make their own beer. As for the 'next generation' - you can never start 'em too young - my grandson Evan: https://picasaweb.google.com/113729492104041066438/EvanSBrewDays# Mike O'Brien BrewGyver 734-637-2532 Return to table of contents

A few weeks later I got a call from my nephew, he and a roommate were brewing beer. Yeah!! We should all try to pass our knowledge on every opportunity we get." I have been working diligently on this. I lived and worked in Utah for 9 months several years back (thought I was making a permanent move there), and got 3 of my fellow engineers (Recovering Mormans) brewing. I told them my work is done, and moved on. My son (now in Milwaukee) brews - he and I made several batches of beer for his wedding reception. My son-in-law is now brewing (he's in Cinci), and so is my youngest daughter and her boyfriend (in Baltimore). I'm doing my part! Brian Holwell, MI Return to table of contents
