Just wanted to raise my glass to all the SWMBOs/HWMBOs out there who support their partners' brewing habit. In the span of two weeks mine let me buy a freezer, a grain mill, a temp controller, a mash paddle, 7 pounds of hops and a false bottom for my MLT. God bless them all.

Here's to poontang and gunpowder. One brings you into the World and one takes you out, and I love the smell of both.

Glad I don't have a SWMBO, but I do have a girlfriend.

shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!! don't tell anyone


but in all honesty i have a pretty darn understanding wife. I don't have to do a lot of begging to get anything done, especially since she loves beer as much as I am and usually is asking when I'll start the next batch (especially when I start running low.

My girlfriend not only allows but encourages my brewing habit. She bought me my starter kit 4 years ago and has helped me build a keezer and 2 brew rigs. I am super grateful that she likes beer and brewing as much as I do
