Default brew hut green light ...

Well I just an email from SWMBO . Seems a few bottles of frozen water fell out of the freezer that I use in the swamp cooler. And I quote

"You need to find an alternative way to cool your beer. I know you enjoy doing it but it shouldn't create such an upheaval for everyone. I think it is time for you to build a shed of sorts to store and manage this little hobby of yours"

This email has been saved, printed and emailed to my personal yahoo account. No way she can say i never said that...


thinking something small 20x20 would work .. Has to have running hot and cold water ,sink 100 amp service. Let the plans begin....




ohohoh a walk would be nice ....

This hobby is cheap compared to my others. And she knows where I am so she don't complain that much. And she likes some of my beers.
Seems like you can hear her just fine when she tells you to spend money!!

Just don't seem too excited about it. Make sure she believes you are doing her a favor

Just grumble about how much of a pain it will be to build it so you can keep your hobby. Don't let her catch you smiling once during the process.

And by all means thank her when you're done by saying how smart she was for suggesting it....

Default Off Topic.

Had a wife like that once....She now makes someone else's life miserable...
I wised up when I met my present wife. I took her home and showed her my
ham shack, I said this is part of who I am. Then I took her to the airport and showed her my airplane. I told her this is part of who I am.
I have had the best 16 years of my life with this woman.
I gladly support her hobby in return...

OK, don't relax yet, its a trap!
Fight it. Just pretend your holding out to hold onto your nuts.
Only when she is ready to accept anything, then bring forth the 20X30, 10x10 walk in included, and move forward with a purpose and then block her out again.

huh? like what someone who buys you a Barley crusher and 100#s of grain for Christmas. She isnt at all controlling but this was a first when she suggested that I build a brew hut. Without any prompting from me.

I usually do what I want like when I decided we needed a 24x40 garage for my other hobbies. She goes along with the flow never any push back. She has her own hobbies and ones we share like camping and motorcycles , she has her own Fatboy. This hobby is actually the only one she isn't overly involved in other than bringing a me a homebrew while I am brewing. and 20x20 is enough for me .... I still have the garage for storage

Jeez....there sure are some anti-wife folks on here!

My wife does have the final say on what I buy. She IS SheWhoMustBeObeyed. This is a good thing. I'd be broke and swimming in crap I'll never use if I didn't have a good check and balance system in place. She's my check and balance system, and we both know it.

I also have the final say on what SHE buys. I'm HER check and balance system.

Yes, she can't actually run your life, but you can't act as if you are sailing through life all alone with some type of faithful servant who will go along with whatever you say, whenever you say it!

Have fun springer! The hut sounds like it will rock!
