Well for the guys out there who still have a hard time convincing the wife about brewing or if they bust your balls on it I got my wife into it full swing and even had her brew her own beer.
Jack O Pumpkin extract kit I picked up from www.homebrewusa.com
. I sat by and just helped her with the entire process and insured no contamination and proper sanitation was used.
She forgot to add the pumpkin; but when she put it into a secondary we added it in and additional pumpkin pie spices.
She directed the bottling procedure (its an all family affair when we bottle).
And then today she pours me a glass of the first popped bottle... amazing. I mean I'm not a big fan of pumpkin but it turned out really well and even taste like pumpkin pie (perhaps of the late addition).
So make sure you share this hobby (not just by giving them brews and taking advantage of SWMBO after one to many) and perhaps you can sit back at times and just enjoy her brews. Next time we're going to brew the same basic recipe and then make additions and see who has the better beer.
SWMBO aerating the WORT before pitching yeast...
Me explaining to my oldest daughter the joys of beer and proper cleaning while the wife yells at us in the background to get back to cleaning.... is 7am to early to drink???
I would post a picture of the finished product; but to busy enjoying it now
Would if be wrong to ask the wife to get me another beer.. or should I ask "HEY bring me another of your beers NOW.... I mean please honey?"
