Default Big milestone

For the first time, I was just told in a very annoyed voice, "All this stuff in the kitchen is in my way!" by SWMBO. I feel like I have arrived.

I had collected bottles & brewing equipment all over the 1st floor. She started complaining too. So I put my printer on this little shelf on the computer hutch above the place where the tower goes. Then cleaned out my old printer stand (large stand) to put all my brewing stuff in.
I've also collected up enough of the sturdier craft 12 pack boxes with folding flaps to store all my recycled bottles in. They're stacked up in the corner to the right of my now fermenter stand.
Momma's all happy now,especially since I bought that set of 4 nested SS stock pots with lids & steamer trays. All polished & purty. I got the 5G stock pot for me,she got the rest. Just gotta work it!

I've gotten away with the clutter so far. I did some advance planning and brewed the second batch for the wife.

Now that 5 gallons worth of beer was her request, she hasn't complained about the two fermenters in the kitchen, the 64 full bottles in her sewing room, ingredients in the kitchen cabinets, or the table full of supplies in the basement.

I guess if she starts to get irritated, I can always make her something else.

Guy the trick is to make her brew with you, than she will accept that you take the smallest room in the basement to make a brewery, best deal ever!

Agreed 100%. Getting my gf to brew with me was a great move, now she's as excited as I am for the next brewday.

For sure! She had fun filling up the bottles that I placed before her so she didn't have to move and did the fun part. Then taking her request for the next brew has her excited. I wonder how long this will go on.. :-)

The key now is to get her to brew. My girlfriend wanted to make a cherry wheat, so we got the ingredients, and she managed the sanitizing, boiling, and hop additions etc. She loved it, and is already talking about our next brew day. It is pretty awesome when SWMBO is just as excited to brew as I am.

Way to go!!

Not sure I'll ever get to your level of brewing nirvana, but I have a new goal. :-)

Wait, she hasn't kicked you out of the kitchen? Rookie.
