If my wife wanted to brew and asked for the damn thing to be gold plated, I'd do it. Good on you for taking the time to design with her in mind. So, if you sit back, with a cold one, and watch while she brews, is that beer voyeurism?

Careful feeding it to animals if you FWH (first wort hop) and have hops in the mash too. Some animals (most notably some dogs) do not do well eating hops. Otherwise its excellent food for them!

I feed some spent grain to my dog. A neighbor takes a couple of pounds to make dog treats for their dog. Whenever I brew I can count on the dog staying close by.

My entire brew rig that I just used for my first all grain batch. And that little puppy got spent grain doggie treats for helping me.
