OMG - My wife likes my beer!!
My wife is not a regular beer drinker but was intrigued by the dark color of my porter I just tapped. She tried it and LIKED it. She even wanted to know how to pour her own glass correctly from the tap. I think I turned a corner here for both my brewing process and forming a brewing partnership.

I gave her my copy of Ray Daniels book, Designing Great Beers and told her to read the beer styles section to help determine a future batch she would like to try. I am hoping she'll choose a lager to leverage purchase of controlled temperature fermentation equipment. :D

I would also like to see her get involved in the process.

Congratulations. it's taken 7 years to get my swmbo to even take a second sip of anything. I've made.

Congrats! SWMBO loves BM's Centennial Blonde and SWMBO Slayer- and I consider that a victory. :D

Congrats, for sure! Luckily, my GF enjoys beer--heck, she had worse things to say about the sixer of Bud American Ale I bought last week than I did--and is really excited about my homebrew. I'm definitely looking forward to using that to drive equipment purchases. ;)

Excellent to hear!

Now, prepare to brew twice as much!

Are you married to SWMBO? I have a wedding ring, and I ain't afraid to use it! ;)

I donated my keg of vanilla porter for a charity event last night... i also took a keg of pale ale... I wasn't planning on taking the porter with me, and I didn't tell SWMBO I was taking it.... She cried. Literally. She was so, so sad that I took her porter away. She had only got 2 L of it before I carried it away.

So now I've commissioned her to select what we brew next. It currently looks like it might be a Chocolate-Vanilla Hobgoblin.

My SWMBO always takes a sip, says "ooh, yum!", but the only thing she's ever drank even half a bottle of is apfelwein. Sure, I'd love it if she actually drank my brew, but you've got to respect her for being supportive.

Not mine, but, the way I look at it, it's more beer for me!

my wife loves beers just as much as me, but we do like different types. I stick with IPA's, Ambers, pretty much anything dark except stouts and porters.

She like wheat beers, other lighter beers.

Needless to say my first batch is a hefeweizen!
