I actually got that for him at NHC last year. There was a guy, Princeton homebrew supply maybe? they were giving out skeeter pee and selling these cool little mash paddles. He always wants to help mash in so it seemed a natural gift. A good friend of mine made my mash paddle for Christmas last year.

Cool. I remember them. So, I guess everything he makes is a small beer.  ;D

Great picture - thanks for sharing!  At 16 and 13, I'm afraid mine are getting less interested in helping out.
