Can anyone point me to a guide of the acronyms you guys use? I've seen a few and can't make sense of any of them. One was a person talking, I assume, about their significant other. The acronym was SWMBO or something. Single while male bottle Oprah? I dunno. The other said "as always RD...." I don't remember the restof the letters. Any help would be appreciated.

SWMBO = She Who Must Be Obeyed

RDWHAHB = Relax, Don't Worry, Have a Homebrew

It doesn't matter if she reads, you aren't supposed to tell new guys what's swmbo means kind of a running joke, (or so im told) you didn't get the memo?

Pick up a copy of Charlie Papazian's "Joy of Home Brewing." He repeats the RDWHAHB throughout the book with the idea that you should generally relax and not worry that you have ruined your batch because beer tends to turn out good in the end.
