So yesterday I got done making an oatmeal stout. My wife, who really doesn't drink beer (except the massive quantites of fermented goat urine in college) asked what it was, and what was the one I did last week.
Me: last weeks was a "mocktoberfest"
Her: a what? why is it a mock?
insert convo on ale vs. lager here, and my inability to do a lager at this time
Her: so you need a mini fridge right?
me: yes, but i dont feel like dropping the ~60 for a CL minifridge and another 50 on a controller
Her: ****thats ok with me, if you are ok with second rate beer, then that is your choice!***
Lol. So, I'm pretty sure she would be ok with getting one. The problem is, I am trying to save up some cash. My wife, ahem, "has our first in the primary right now", so I am trying to build up cash for when the fermenter pops!
