100 bucks, just buy some grain, hops and yeast and brew a bunch of batchs.

The pot passed the wife's "eye roll test". Unfortunately I had to promise to keep it wrapped until Christmas. (Excepting an initial inspection)

Wouldn't work. I do most of the cooking, so any mess made by me is mine by default. Besides I doubt I could scare her that easily after the "blackend sugar stuck to the stove" incident. (That was NOT fun to clean!)
