I agree with the idea to take her to a place that sells beer and let her taste and tell you what she likes. Here we have a place that sells over 200 beers. I am certain she could find one or two that she likes. Then find a recipe that comes very close. Letting her choose makes her a part of the fun.

I love these posts. Makes me realize how awesome I have it. If I ever felt the need to call my wife by that acronym, she'd get the prefix ex- instead!

I developed my strawberry blonde recipe (see my recipes drop down) to appease my wife. It really helped because even though she doesn't drink much beer she tolerates a LOT of beer related nerdery due to that one beer being around.

1 pound Carapils or wheat
mash at 152F
For Extract use 8 pounds extra light LME or 6 pounds DME(just a guess)
1 oz Perl 60 mins
1 oz Hallertau for 20 minutes
ferment at 60F with Kolsch yeast, but Nottingham works well also
This has been my house beer for BMC drinkers9and the rest of us) for 12 years now.
I second the Kolsch
I give it to my friends who don't like hoppy beer.

My wife hates beer and the smell after a session but she likes that I have a hobby that entertains me. Maybe start making wine on the side?

How about a saison? Or if she's REALLY patient - a lambic. My wife is NUTS about lambics

I, and I think many others here, just use the term as a known term for "wife" in a joking manner. We don't literally have to obey our wives. We're not 5 years old and they're not our mothers.

OP - Good luck in your search. I agree with taking the wife to a brew pub or 12 and ordering the tasting flights. If she doesn't find anything she likes, then just keep brewing what you like knowing you tried. Not everyone is going to like beer. She should, however, at least respect the fact that you do and support you in your hobbies and interests. She's your wife.
