Default Best. Wife. Ever.

Instead of a shirt or something normal for a Valentines present, she bought me two more 6 gallon better bottles! Brings my total to four, so now I need to get brewing!

Having a spouse who understands and appreciates your brewing makes all the difference. My wife is a saint who puts up with waaaay to much brewing stuff!!

Haha no sister, she is an only child. She said she almost got me a new golf club (driver) but decided on the bottles instead. Certainly a keeper!

She caved at first and let me have the shelf in the closet.... then I eventually got the whole closet. Now I have taken over part of the garage too and she has relented and said ok to the keezer in the office. She certainly understands the brewing addiction.

HA HA, I know the feeling! Mine bought me an extract IPA kit from Northern Brewer, a yeast starter kit, and some various other brewing odds and ends. It's awesome to have a wife who supports the obsession!

Cool.

My wife is good too. She bought me an equipment kit for Christmas to get me started and once she saw I liked it so much she suggested that I need a second fermenter, so I could have two batches brewing at all times..

MMMMMM beer

Default Brew Spouse

Half a closet... I have take over 2/3 of the basement. I haven't washed a bottle or scraped a label in over a year. And there are 300 bottles in my basement (and I keg most of my beer). My wife is a huge help and quite the enabler to my addition. I consider myself a very lucky man.
