I loved reading through her point of view, I decided to share with SWMBO and the first thing she says is "My life!" I tell her, we're not there yet, just wait till I start all grain.

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I just sent it to my SWMBO, she has no idea what's about to hit her. I'm only 2 batches in!
