Kids In Kettles
« on: September 29, 2010, 06:42:44 AM »
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>

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  ;)

One question, was that kid sanitized before you put her in there?  ;D

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... ;)
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

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:



and some of them actually helping like this:



or this:



EDIT:  Hmmm... the pictures are not showing up.  Not sure what I did wrong.
