Uuuh,well,amanda,if both of you brew,wouldn't that make it better? I explain to my wife, who brews too that it's needed for x part of the prodcess & why. That seems to make sense to her. I let her brew what she wants. Of course,I also like what she likes too,so that's cool.

This happens alot on the fishing websites I belong to. One way around it is to have the items shipped to your work or a friends house.

Out of sight, out of mind.

I have been working on a starter for it. I started with a bottle of Blue Moon and the dregs maybe half to 3/4 of a gram of yeast and other trub out of the bottom and I have been stepping it up since. I now have enough yeast to choke a horse. I will be banking some of it until I try the clone. If it is good I will freeze it and be set for a long time

I wish my wife even drank beer, let alone brewed it. I usually just buy and the confess afterwards. That way the yelling is just "why did you spend so much money" instead of "why did you spend so much money after I explicitly told you not to". She has yet to make me return anything :-D

$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.
... and yup.

Or, you could be honest with your wife and work out a compromise. Please note that this comes from a guy who's wife enjoys beer and homebrewing. I also have a good sense of on what I should and should not be spending money.
