My wife (SWMBO) is ready to strangle me. She agreed to the Mr. Beer because she thought it was cute that her man was going to make his own beer. Figured I would get tired of it after it turned out like most of my other projects.
She smiled a little bit when I decided last week to do a partial mash Oatmeal Stout. She still thinks it's cute.
Today, I went to Brewmasters Warehouse and picked up a fermenting bucket and air lock along with the ingredients to make SHOULTZ-MEYER BREWERY DON'T CALL ME HEFE brew. Today, she didnt smile much. She asked me if this was the last batch this year. I had to chuckle and say "I promise I wont brew more for the rest of this year". She doesnt know that I am planning on a January 1, 2013 brew.
So, yeah, I am now moving away from the LBK as my main and have stepped up to the big time with the bucket.
Now, I am gonna have to get comfy on this couch. I have a feeling Im going to be using it for a few days.
