When you get up early Sunday morning to clean up the second brewday of the week before the wife gets up. When the kitchen's clean,the man cave/brewery is next.

When you get up early Saturday morning to brew and start drinking at 7:00am because you have to be sober for church at 4:00pm

When the snow melts in springtime,your plot for the summer garden is
completely covered with spent grain.

Or you look like an invalid dragging your green compost bin with frozen wheels through 3 foot snow drifts that is about 20 pounds too heavy because of the wet then frozen spent grains.....

Wow.....I've never had an unsuccessful batch yet lol I think you should stick to paying someone who knows to teach you to brew well and this way you can finally say you are homebrewing and not just grain bumping lol

I just had this conversation with her. I suggested using a coat. ( I flipped off the circuit breaker on the furnace so she now thinks it's broken lol)

Nah she won't do that. All the house repairs fall under my department. Plus I'll get brownie points for "fixing" it when the time comes lol.

Update: ok she found the breaker. Now she's bragging that she fixed it lol!
