Primary 1-This Bud's for you
Primary 2- Cream Ale
Secondary 1- Strong Scotch Ale
Secondary 2- empty
Bottled/Kegged- Centinneal Blonde, Apfelwein
Up Next- MyCastle (N.English Brown Ale), Hooch Pale Ale
Thinking About: Tripple Bock, Chocolate Stout, open to suggestions

My girlfriend is my assistant brew master. Which really means she takes notes while I brew. It's nice that she likes my brewing and wants to learn about it.

Get her in touch with my wife. My 40th is two weeks away and I'm hoping for a 40qt brewpot and a cooler to fashion an MLT. Then it's AG for me.

You have to love a good SWMBO who wants to assist in brewing. Mine is really most interested in helping me bottle, as that's the hardest part of my process. I think she does it so that she gets the "Bottling Bitch" title on my labels.
Primaries - Refugee Ale , "Hop Soup" Imperial IPA (doing my best to help create the Hop shortage!
Bottled & drinking - Sleeman Steam Clone, 9 Popped Cherries Ale, Hard lemonade, Refugee Ale ( my Ipswich Ale Clone) Basic Cider v.3, Anchor Steam clone, and a wee bit of mead

My SWMBO bought me my turkey fryer also. I'm pretty sure she saw the potential for mess and wanted it out of the kitchen ASAP.

While mine doesn't assist in my brewing at all, she is always supportive of when I want to, and never has given me grief for any of my purchases.

yeah, she's a keeper too.
