If you have enough taps, I would make one specifically dedicated to the rootbeer. It's really potent stuff and it's hard to wash out that flavor from the keg and lines.

very true. Saniclean helps quite a bit though.

The missus said to tell you to buy her a brand new one and you get the old one.

Not going to work though I bet because she will load both up with silly things like food

I find something gold with a shinny rock of some type usually convinces my wife. The trickist to get her something that costs less than the brewing equipment that I want.

Ironically, whenever I want to smooth things over or get my wife in a good mood for whatever reason, the thing that works best is ice cream. Go figure.

to be honest my wife is great about the brewing. In fact she gave me my starter kit as a birthday gift 2 years ago.

i bought 1 for a ferm chamber off c-list, and i was getting dressed to go pick it up. wife asked me where i was going. i told her "to go pick up a chest freezer i bought off craigslist". she said "oooo... an ice cream and pizza freezer. yummmmm". i said "nope, it's for my brewing!" it always has at least 3 varieties of ice cream and a stack of pizzas, and a few slabs of meat in it now...

I understand keeping the wife happy, but if you have the money and the room for it, just go get it.

If the bill collector's knocking, or you have to move the washer and dryer to the garage to fit it in the house, then I could see her being pissed.

See, that's exactly what I am afraid of. We already have one freezer with pizza and ice cream and a couple of turkeys from who knows when. She told me "why don't you just put the beer in this freezer we have?", and I just looked at her. She's cool with the brewing, but not really about me talking about recipe ideas or me getting all giddy over the hydrometer samples I taste. I went off on a tangent about galaxy hops two days ago that I was about ten minutes into before I realized she had gone to take a shower. I am glad that she is as supportive as she is, after all, she did tell me to brew more beer for when her dad and brother come and visit, so that is pretty cool. I just hope they never come by expecting a lager.

Did'nt convince mine. She came home and found a new upright with four faucets drilled into the door in my garage. All I said was,"cuz I needed it".
