I tell her, "shut your hole and know your role!"

Not really... shes not here is she?

If I edit this later, you'll know why.

Very fortunate here: my wife's extremely supportive of my brewing, and generally loves the results, from wines to Belgians to porters to IPAs.

Of course, she has a few expensive hobbies, too, and she's insistent that we be fair about it all. Far be it from me to complain! Heck, the bills get paid, I've got my kegerator, and she's happy.

My wife is pretty supportive, too, though I don't go too crazy on gear and always make sure there's something in the fridge -- or at least the pipeline -- that she likes.

My wife wanted a brewery for her birthday. I happily obliged, as this gave me the best hobby on the planet with a wondeful woman who enjoys making beer!

Bob has been the same way with me, but it was nearly $400 at Northern Brewer in September. He blinked, and then just sucked in his breath.

But he drinks at least 50% of the beer around here, and probably 85% of the wine, so he's not really saying much at all at this point.

My wife is incredibly supportive no matter how many packages pile up on the front porch.

She's the level best.

That one worked out well for me, though...

You highside a motorcycle at 75 mph on a racetrack, and all of a sudden the womenfolk get "concerned" about your "safety"...

So I'm not allowed to do that anymore.

But it does, of course, make brewing significantly safer by comparison

It's surprisingly simple. If you bottle like me, you need a sanitary work environment. That's probably the kitchen.

Dishes done, sink sparkling, counter so clean you could do surgery on it.... all makes for a happy SWMBO.


I'm really fortunate, in so far that while she only has passing interest in brewing her own stuff, she loves the smell of boiling wort.
