Yesterday SWMBO brought me home a stir plate, a thermometer, an Erlenmeyer flask, a graduated cylinder, some PH strips, a really cool 3 clock timer, and enough tubbing to last me until the end of the world REALLY happens... :P

She also saw me checking out the posts on how to make a yeast bank, and said: we can store it in my -80 freezer... they'll last much longer that way.

She then proceeded to read through a bunch of science pdfs about yeast storage/culturing.

My wife is awesome.

i got one of those too. unfortunately all of my swmbo's stuff has had some pretty nasty items inside of them so i really dont wanna use any of it. it'd be nicer if she worked with yeast but NOOOOO it had to be the herpes virus...

Yeah. You don't want to cross those two. You intend to brew a double IPA and get a "Herp Bomb" instead of a "Hop Bomb".

Bottling the Belgian: A Photo Odyssey

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

I don't see Herpes on the Meilgaard Flavor Wheel, but a "Genital Surprise Schwarzbeir" is probably not going to go over well with the SWMBO. It'd be a hit with the BMC crowd, though!

She controls the ordering, so she can bring home lots of nice clean stuff.

Give her a big kiss, then throw out the ph strips when she's not looking.

While I know they aren't as precise as a digital meter, whats wrong with test strips? They have been used for decades. Mind you, I lock my PH with 5.2 anyway as my water ph (form the well) tends to run a bit high. I've been getting good results with that addition and thats all that counts to me.
