Our Little Brew Helper

I have mentioned before that whenever we brew beer it is not only an all day event, but we get the entire family involved.   Brewing is not only  a hobby passion that my husband and I share, but his brother is also the third piece of our triforce.   We get friends and neighbours involved too.  Sometimes the neighbours come over to help mill the grain, or sample the wares and give honest critique.  Even our little girls help out by adding the hops.

The last few times we have done a brew we had begun in the early evening.  We had told our oldest daughter that she could put the hops into the pot (with flame turned down and adult supervision of course!).  She has done this before and is always pretty excited to be a part of the process.  I think she just loves being involved in something that we are all doing.  These last few times, though, the boil and the hop additions have happened way past her bed time.  It was getting late and I had to tell Loveliness that she couldn’t add the hops (yet again).

Weighing the hops so they can be added to the boil

Instead we got her to help mom weigh the hops and get them ready for later on in the evening.  She got to measure out all the hops, and to mark the names on each of the bowls so they would be easy to spot when it was time to add them.
