So today is brew day and I've got an Irish Red on the go. Loves me a good Irish Red.

So I say to SWMBO, "I'm going to mash this one a little higher than normal. I usually mash too low."

Blank stare.

"Mashing higher gives it more body."


She says, "I guess I was mashed high."

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Hopefully she wasn't dryhopped after that comment.
There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."
