First off if you saw all of the brew stuff setting around the house you'd think I am a bachelor. I set up a swamp cooler in our bathroom so it is out of the way. I have been swapping water bottles almost constantly and still barely keepin it in the 60's. She looked at me and said.. " I TOLD YOU TO JUST SET THAT IN OUR BEDROOM AND LEAVE THE AC CRANKED ALL THE TIME UNTIL IT IS DONE" keep in mind I have room upstairs that is used for nothing except beer that has Ac 24/7... plus SHE IS AGREEING TO A 20x 40 BARN WHEN THE FUNDS ARE AVAILABLE JUST FOR BREWING...... SHE LOVES ME!!!

I would agree with that assessment.

She's either a saint, or she has a plan... Maybe she wants children and you don't? Maybe she's been cheating on you and has a bad conscience? Or... you're just a lucky guy! I do hope for you it's the latter!

OHIOSTEVE, my wife said we need a larger house with a couple of barns for wine and beer. She even suggested I grow grapes. Currently my family room is my brewery and wine room. It works for now. It is on a cement floor so I don't fight with temps unless it is 90 + degrees, but the central air is on then.

I new I married the best women for a reason! Looking for a new place in the near future.

20x40!! Jesus. I've been told "Why don't you just build a brew shed"? So when money is available it's on, but it won't be 20x40!!!

You hafta have a good woman for this hobby...mine hates the smell of wort, but loves the homebrew. Hates the mess I make when brewing, but has had enough bad beer to realize the process is worth it.

Congrats on a keeper, and enjoy that barn, lucky SOB!

That's awesome. We are currently in a starter house and waiting for the market to turn around a little more, then its time for the big house. One of my 'must haves' is a detached garage with a spare room (which will obviously be a bar/brewery). Surprisingly, she is okay with it. Granted, it means I have to cave in to her 'must haves', but its a price worth paying.
