First off, I had to re-read the first part of that. My heart skipped a beat. The title reads "Killed By the UPS Man", then the first part of the post reads, "Last night...my wife was stuck..." which looked liked "struck" to me. For a second I thought your wife got run over by a UPS truck. Yikes.

Anyway, what do you mean, "busted"? If you think that you can hide this hobby from your wife, you're mistaken...unless you have a secret brew cave under the house....

Agreed, I know it is easier to ask forgivness but this is one thing that you can't sneek by, just try to bring her in on it too, could be a fun family event.

Cheers

Repeat after me: "Hello, my name is WormBoy, and I'm a brewholic."

The first step is always admitting that you have a problem.

I'm always open with my wife about my brewing addiction. She loves my beers, so she doesn't argue too much. And it's never about money, just about taking 6+ hours out of my weekend to brew.

She just isn't a beer person. She has tasted a number of my beers and said they tasted great "If she liked beer" Whatever that means.
In terms of the spending, I just tend to buy everything I want [need] as the impluse strikes me, so with these next few boxes my ten gallon set-up is completely dialed in. No more kettle/water/burner shuffling. Three kettles, three burners, no lifting - yipee.
But a brew cave aye?
Hmmm, I could start to dig through a basement wall....
