So I ordered a bunch of stuff today I ordered 25 vials with lids form crazyirishman34 with shipping A blue moon kit and a digital Johnson controller from AHS. A refractometer, sight glass w/thermometer, and another basic sight glass from Bobby M. Oh and Just for kicks I found a centrifuge on Ebay so I placed a bid on it (I low balled it so I probably wont win but it is fun) when she bitches I am going to tell her I decided not to build the keezer right now, and use the freezer as a fermentation chamber. In the long run it saver her money. Sounds like a good excuse to me.

At least you'll only hear one set of complaints that way.

I'm lucky, my wife doesn't get mad and she only occasionally gets even.

I do that too! And then tell her that I just made 5 gallons of beer for $16.

$16 for the grain, plus $45 for site glass, $120 for the kettle, $40 for the weldless ball valve, etc. I haven't figured out the depreciation of all my equipment yet.

Hey we all do what we have to right. I am usually home unless I am at school. I track all the packages and try to intercept them prior to he seeing them. They head directly to the garage and it disappears later she will see me with it and I can honestly say i bought it months ago.

If my husband snuck beer equipment into the house without telling me, it better get gift wrapped pretty darn quick.
Its a sixth sense, I'll know.
