Default Do you think I could sneak this purchase past my SWMBO? ;)


Complete U Brew Business

I'm sure if I was clever with the paperwork and drove it into the garage at night, she'd be none the wiser... Well, except for the garage smelling even more like a brewery than normal.

And also the fact that she didn't see you for a solid month and every corner of every closet was filled with beer.

Other than that, I'd say there is no way she will know

Nice idea... I figure as long as I could convince her that it was for either cleaning the house and/or the dogs I'd be in like flynn.

Looks like some sort of very serious plate chiller in the foreground.

You could stash this rig at my place for a few years, while you get the SWMBO used to the idea.

You need this to go along with it. Found it while searching beer on my local CL.

Is that a plate chiller or a filter?
