That is terrific!   :)  Two of my three kids have some interest in brewing.  Now if I can get them to pick up some of the books...

That's awesome!  My little guy loves to watch me brew.  I'm hoping to bring him on board as an assistant when he's ready. :)

Folks were laughing at me at a pool party once because my youngest was still in diapers but he knew how to refill my beer from a keg and bring it to me so I didn't have to leave the pool.  Good pour each time to boot!

My kids don't get to taste much beer - but they smell plenty, starting from the mash tun through to when I am drinking. I figured that we teach them the names of colours and musical notes - why not aromas. Their noses are pretty sharp - they just need to learn the names of things.

My wife is into cooking and does the same with herbs - getting them to indentify what she has used.

We're the same way Ant, trying to teach them how to taste and smell and identify different ingredients.  They like that game. :)

My 12 year old daughter knows more about craft beer than half of my friends without ever having tasted.  I think its great
