The wife was the driving force behind our start. I proposed it as a new hobby but I already have too many. She gets bummed if i do a brew day without her. With all the hobbies that are just for me, it is nice to have a joint one. Although she doesn't read up on it or design recipes, she does request certain styles. If only I could get her to mow the lawn. Then of course she would say the same about me and laundry.
