Not about this issue but there has been a couple of times that I have had to tell the Mrs. I am a grown man and me informing you I am doing something is a courtesy not your opportunity to think you are my mother and can dictate what I do. Whether it be mtn biking, going to a strip club with some friends, brewing etc, marriage isn't about one bossing the other around.
Honestly if I was you I would have handed her the car keys and said, "if you like I will call you when I am done, but whether you stay or go I'm brewing today."
