I've tried my old man, both of my younger brothers, and even my girlfriend...to no avail. Turns out the most loyal brewing partner I have is my dog. Now I call her the brewdog

One of our cats likes to supervise. He knows that there are times when I'm not busy and am available for petting duty and isn't afraid to ask for it.

I gotta be honest, the post above and one of the very first replies are right on. Brewing is one of my only me times with a wife and a 2 year old. Occasionally I do ask my wife for help bottling when my auto siphon needs priming with the bottling wand attached. I can get it primed on 3+ gallon batches but 1 gallon not so much.

I'm sure I will end up with a brew buddy or two when we get into a new place and I get a basement/garage taproom up and running but until then, i'm happy with my alone time

My kids are all grown up, I've been divorced for years, and when either one was in the house there is no way I could have had all this beer sitting around without someone getting into lots of trouble.
Brewing for me is a way to enjoy time by myself.
