It all started with the Mr. Beer Kit (akin to the functionality of an Easy Bake Oven) that I bought him for his birthday two years ago. If you just did the math, you can infer correctly that he can be slow on the uptake. Although, once he gets started on a project, he devotes himself to it with the steadfast reverence of a monk, who were the first brewers, oddly enough.
