Default whose wife/gf helps them bottle?

I was just. Curious who's wifey helps with in my opinion the most tedious part of brewing.

Mine has been good about helping me every time

My wife's favorite part of the whole process is helping with bottling. Go figures.

SWMBO gave up on bottling years ago. Just last week I convinced my 10 1/2 yr old daughter to help me bottle three batches. I offered her $2/ batch, she countered with $3 per batch with the option of quitting if she didn't enjoy it. Long story short, we wound up settling at $2.54 per batch if she helped with all three batches, $2.25 per batch if she quit part way through. She made it through the entire process, and even helped me take notes in the brew log, so I paid her $8 - a little extra because the brew log update was not included in the original deal.

Mine too! She doesn't even like beer, and can't stand the smell of wort/brewing/hops. But she loves filling the bottles. I don't know why, and I don't ask. I love her help!

I get help from my 12 yo. She's been helping me brew and bottle for a while now.

I feel bad the kids do many chores around the house and don't even get allowance.


I lied. I don't feel bad.
