I think you may be right...but she lives 250 miles away. so its no worry, im just dead broke right now cuz of graduate school costs..ill continue my extract brewing lookin at ag slowly. maybe once i get a little leway. doubtful....but the SWMBO is not the most accepting of my hobby..i think cuz she believes my money could be better spent, lol. yet she agrees once i get a full time job that a bar with a kegging setup will be necessary, so i dont complain.Do you have a SWMBO? This year you might want to spend some time with her, unless you like being alone.
