With a busy work schedule, I really plan my brew days, it's my time. So sitting down to dinner with my wife, she says she notices how much I enjoy brewing and she said she's interested. My jaw dropped, i couldnt believe it! and so I invited her to help me out tmrw! Shes into it as of now and is full of questions. So I'm running through the process so she can help out.

Has anyone else had their wife help them brew?!?!

No, thankfully. It's a hobby I like to do without my wife.

I usually ask mine to help with bottling.

+1. If you want to help out with something, mow the damn lawn.

My girlfriend likes to brew with me from time to time and she usually helps me bottle. The trick is to not overload her with info or she'll stop being amused. Keep it simple and fun if you want her to help again.

My wife has helped me bottle in the past when I have asked her. I usually don't get help from her and that's fine with me. It's my hobby/passion and not hers. We have been together for close to 30 years and there is a reason for that.

I'll start to talk about brewing and she gets this glazed look in her eyes and says, "shoes?"

My wife said to me this weekend that she really can't stand the smells of brew day. I suppose that means she will never want to help me.

Man, you got to jump on that right now!

After that you guys should totally plan some beers and start planning some equipment upgrades too!
