Default Primary women homebrewers

Aside from Yooper, how many primary brewers out there are women? Those that are the brewers in the family, not because the husband or boyfriend brews also. Just asking this question because I was in my LHBS the other day and there was a very attractive woman getting her grain bill. I asked if she was the brewer and she stated that she was the helper, implying a significant other was the main brewer. I somehow felt a little disappointed. I had fantasies of a match made in beer heaven. Pop the balloon!

I am a woman brewer. Sometimes can convince my fiance to help me out, but its usually a stretch.

I think there are quite a few, but I haven't "seen" some of them in a while. I know JMulligan, nomadjanet, Bedlam, and Laural are very active brewers. I think Melana is still on the wagon, though!

There were quite a few more active ones in the past. Whatever happened to BetaPleatedSheet, Beerluvngirl(I think I got that ID wrong), JuneBug, DancingBareFoot, and some of the others?

Who am I missing? I swear, my memory really is getting terrible!

Yeah, in my experience people are always excited to help until they find out how much cleaning is involved

Me! I ordered 6 lbs of hops last weekend and only told my darling husband about it later.

We brew together, but he got mad at me the last time I started without him because he wasn't home...

I am a brew gal. Hubby is great help when I need it (bottling, carboys, etc) but I do the cooking and recipe formation!

I was at Ace Hardware getting a couple of blow off tubes for the new better bottle carboys (I need the glass ones for mead brewing this summer). As soon as the gentleman found out it was for brewing, we were having a great time swapping stories about brewing. Too cool!
