My SWMBO just came up with a term that I think I need to be share. She just referred to herself as a “beer widow.” As in she has lost me to the hobby/obsession of home brewing.

Say what you will, but I'd take my wife over beer any day. I'm not sure if she meant that SERIOUSLY, but if so, perhaps you should take her out for a nice dinner instead of brewing this weekend.

Every SWMBO is a widow of some kind......football, brewing, hunting, fishing, whatever.

Damn, DB, that's what I was gonna say.

Hell, she doesn't even need to do anything when helping. Just tell her to go put on her sexiest little nighty and prance around the place while you brew. At least, that's what I try to do... I'll let you know if it ever works.

You try and prance in a nighty while brewing?

Isn't that asking for a boilover?

Mine gets irritated once in a while, but most of the time she's very supportive of my brewing and has even been my brewing assistant quite a few times.

The first AG that she helped with blew her freaking mind. She didn't understand why I would want to do all that extra 'stuff' instead of just doing extract brews like I used to.

Mine is supported every time she pours herself one of my beers. She truly enjoys my beers and in doing so, puts up with my obsession.

Now she's pushing for a brew hut so all my equipment, ingredients, etc, are out of the house & garage.

She still can't believe I brew the stuff though. Happy Camper, she is.
