Moving to a new area is always an experience. Meeting good neighbors is always nice. Our neighbors are great- close to our age, love kids, put up with our dog, et cetera. The husband was curious about my homebrew. Asking a couple questions about it, learning it was "cheap and easy"- my words not his- he became intrigued.
His deterrent was that every homebrew he ever had was a hopped up beer. Too bitter. I told him that homebrew would be whatever you make it. I took over some of my malt heavy Imperial Brown Ale, made with all English hops (not too bitter), and he liked it. Now he knows that we can brew a beer that he likes, and he is interested in brewing with me the next time.
What is great about homebrewers is that they share. I told him that we could find a "clone" to almost any beer out there. Lets find a beer that he likes, and see how close we can get to it. He is up for it. So after the Memorial Day Wedding brew gets put into secondary, we will probably boil up some malt heavy, english hop beer. Now it is just time to do some research and find what we will actually be brewing.
Time will tell, and photos will be taken- look forward to another beer drinking becoming a homebrewer.
