Genius!!!!

My fiancée got me hooked on this hobby. She's usually my assistant brewer. She's totally mad that she had to teach all day Monday while I was doing my Oktoberfest.

There's a crazy notion out there that soaking your feet in beer will get rid of nail fungus. Entirely BS, I think, but then marketers don't let the facts get in the way.

Funny, my wife bitches too. She is the one that said I should try it out 4+ years ago. So it's not my fault I'm über hooked and have spent a ton of money.

It helps a lot to use a pumping up and down action with a large potato masher rather than a spoon. Much easier

I actually use an over sized ladle now, I agree an up and down motion mixes the mash but easier and better.
