Title: Kids In Kettles
Post by: MrNate on September 29, 2010, 01:42:44 PM
Allright, homebrewing dads. I know you've got pictures of your kids in brew kettles, fermenters, and other brewing containers - Let's see them!

Here's my oldest, this was a couple years ago. Just found this picture when I was looking for my kegorator pics.

Sorry, not me.  I don't let me kids get into my kettles, although they've added hops and stuff.  It never even occurred to me to do it until I saw your pic. <shrug>

I never did it either. I would be too tempted to turn it on. Only kidding I love my little bumbles.

Hey I wonder if I could get my wife to fit in a kettle.

My oldest boy is in his terrible 3's. I bet it would add some bitterness or astringency to the beer
but I may try it...

There is a mill setting joke in there too, I just know it.

Not in the kettle, but I've got some pics of my daughter in my lager box, which she helped me build.  If I remember, I'll upoad them sometime.  My youngest is not quite 2 and I don't want that little petri dish near my brewing stuff  ;)

None here . . I think it was too Hansel and Gretelish for me . . . That story disturbed me when I was a kid!  :D

One question, was that kid sanitized before you put her in there?  ;D
Title: Re: Kids In Kettles
Post by: MrNate on October 01, 2010, 12:47:19 PM
That kid is never sanitized.

Crazy, man. I did this on HBT a while back and everybody had these pictures.

I'm pretty sure I've seen a picture of YOU in your kettle, so I wouldn't doubt it... ;)

Mine are 8 and 5 ... and they won't fit in my kettle (although they would fit in the kettle that started off this thread)

I do have quite a few pictures like this:

I'll have to see if I have any pictures, but my son did announce very loudly at a party that I brought beer to "Papa makes the beer!" before going to fetch his own bottle. He was 2.

Finally got around to getting him into a kettle. In this one you can see my outdoor setup. Indoor version is similar, but more spider-y.

Little kids have a natural genius for that. All happy, smiling, laughing and staying still- until you try to snap some pics. Then all bets are off. I suggest opening the f-stop, increase your shutter speeds and make lots of exposures.

Would too if you got a decent 5 barrel system going.....
