Yesterday was our anniversary, and with both of us being in school at the moment, we were going pretty low-key this year (I made a nice dinner and we're going out tonight). Well, she bought me a turkey fryer and a propane tank, saying "If it makes the beer better, I figure it's a gift for both of us." Now I'm a cooling coil away from full boils and then an MLT away from all-grain. Just as excitingly, I'm going to be brewing outside soon. Just another reason why she's a keeper.
