Default Too Many Fermenters?

Last night SWMBO said I was being ridiculous. She went down into the basement sometime yesterday and noticed that I have 6 fermenters cranking away.

All I could do was grin like this. ------>

Good thing she didn't see my 3 new kegs!

I've got four going right now, which is the most ever. My wife's pretty cool about my brewing, but between the igloo coolers in our living room, the downstairs shower having been converted into a bottle soaking facility, and the office covered in beer bottles, buckets, grain and other brewing equipment, I think she's starting to get tired of it.

Next time put all of your carboys in her closet next to her brand new shoes... she will think twice about bringing up your beer inventory.

I thought that two pails would cover it for me, but it leaves me waiting, when I want to brew.

Hate happening here. You have SIX fementers?!?!?!!?

I JUST last weekend got a second fermenter! SWMBO is not pleased that there are 3 secondaries in the unusable corner of the laundry room.

I quietly add kegs and that's ok, but big glass visible stuff is not.

Wimen, go figur.

I've got 3 going now, Heffe, Brown and Applewein my most ever. My SWMBO doesn't care about the brewing but boy she sure doesn't like the sulphur smell coming from the basement.
