Cost will be higher, but if you are sure she will be going full time, or if she is making enough on the hourly thing, you can always go COBRA for (18 mos I think).

Also you will probalby change your outlook on brewing when it becomes a job, but a lot better to find out doing it for someone else before sinking time and money into your own startup

That last reply of mine was to the person before. But I agree with and understand what you're saying. I plan on being very cautious which is the only reason I didn't say yes immediately. I appreciate you sharing your experience. Lots to think about.

Good luck man. I am going to subscribe to this thread. If you do take it you should give periodic updates as to how your thoughts on brewing have changed, if you love it more, if you find it boring after time. I'd love to do the same, I hope it works out for you.

That's a great idea man. I will most certainly do that. Starting this Friday with the interview.

working for an organization that is just starting up, I can tell you it is challenging. Now, I'm not in the brewing business, but I am faced every day with the reality that this business (I'm not the owner, btw) may fail at any time and they will close up shop leaving me without work. To be honest I hate my job, but I think it's more of function of my industry rather than the start-up aspect. I'm glad I'm not in your shoes because I don't think I could turn down a brewing job, all things considered like insurance from your wife. Do I regret taking my current position? Yes, but I think I would have regretted it more NOT taking it and having a steady income. Something to think about for sure, I would just hate to say "what if I had only taken that brewing job...?". That would kill me hahaha

Quick update. Guy didnt show for the interview. Apologized and called me to set up another one. i said unless its part time, no thanks. These guys are already almost 2 years behind schedule and then they cant call to tell me the interview cant happen? I took a half day off of work for it. Oh well. We will see what happens.

Ehh, not too disappointing. I was pretty sure I wasnt going to take a full time position. These guys have been late on everything. I wouldnt risk my current pay and insurance for that.
