Title: My Newest Assistant Brewer
Post by: Mark G on May 26, 2011, 03:07:42 PM
Emersyn Ela Gres, born 5/25/2011 at exactly 10am. 7 lbs, 6 oz and 18 inches long. Mom's ready for a homebrew and requested a Kolsch. It's been cold-conditioning for two weeks. That will have to be good enough this time. I'll try to post a pic after we get home from the hospital.

A cool English house-brewing tradition, carried on by a few homebrewers, is to brew a barleywine for the child, to be aged until his/her 21st birthday. Of course, you're probably going to be too busy to brew much.

I was planning on doing this actually. It may be a bit before I find the time, but I'm already pondering the recipe.

Thanks again for all the kind words. Cheers!

Oh no... Our third, plus two others from my wife's previous marriage, so five total. Luckily, the oldest is sixteen and has always been a huge help. I grew up in a house with four brothers/sisters, so this is just like old times.  ;D

Something to be said for big families.  I grew up with just three brothers, my wife with six brothers.  On my mom's side, some of my cousin's families had as many as eight (thirty six first cousins total on that side).  Reunions are lots of fun.

When someone mis-pronounces my name or calls me by the wrong name I like to say, "That's OK, you can call me whatever you like - just don't call me late for dinner!"

Those who come from big families usually get a kick out of that.
