Default Well, she is pissed off again at my brewing...

I bought a perlick faucet yesterday so I can stick it in the door of my beer fridge. The wife is not really pissed, she just shook her head. I don't think she get suprised anymore at the things I do in the name of BEER.

I have a huge rubbermaid container full of bleach water and 66 Sleeman's bottles in the bathroom. Yesterday I thanked my wife for putting up with my hobbies, and she said I never really give her an option. I told her that's why I was thanking her.

The trick is when your wife starts to complain you need to find a temperary hobby more annoying then the hobby you actually want to do. When she starts to b1tch about the new hobby you can go back to the old one

Excellent. How about philandering as the new hobby?

That would solve the problem one way or another, I imagine

My wife mostly bristles at the endless succession of nickle and dime equipment purchases. She's apparently under the impression that there comes a time when a brewer has everything and only needs to purchase ingredients.

Laughable, isn't it?

Edit: actually, I should probably show her the photos some of you guys have up of your setups. She has no idea how restrained I am in that regard.

When I met my wife I was kayaking ~80 days a year and Raleigh is about 3-7 hrs from the good stuff in the mountains == weekends, holidays, vacations. I also had a pretty close scrape the week before our wedding on my kayaking 'bachelor' party. Now any hobby that keeps me on our property or at least in the zipcode seems like a good compromise to her.

I actually used to think that. Now I know when I go in to make my $12.00 purchase for ingredients it will end up costing me over $30.00.
I know my wife doesn't care for me brewing all that much but I've got to give her credit. She doesn't give me a hard time about it.

My wife occasionally gets perturbed about some of the equipment purchases, but I have to give her credit, she is a sweetheart and pretty much lets me do anything I want to do...provided it isn't illegal or cheating.

My wife has nothing to complain about. She bought me my first setup for Christmas a few years back. It's all her fault!!!!
