My wife and I started brewing together. She's not as into it anymore, but she's totally supportive of me (I suppose she likes that it distracts me from my other hobby - motorcycles - which she really doesn't get). We're in the planning stages of building a house and it was her idea to make sure I have a brewing space.

Reading through the thread makes me wonder... where are the female brewers?

Ha, I taught my wife to be my standby mechanic back when I was racing motorcycles. She was good enough to tear the engine down to the cases in under 1 hr :D

As for the female brewers, well you met my wife, she was the reason we brew.She came home one day with all the buckets,grains,extract and brewed our very first batch.

I don't know - I'm not into cars or motorcycles, to me they're just modes of transportation.  I can see why some people really like them and that's cool, they just hold no real interest to me.  Bouef.

Back on topic, ordered some Apricot extract for my wife to make a batch of Magic Hat #9 clone, hopefully it'll get here in time for Thanksgiving. I think once she experiences how much fun it is having everybody praise the beer you made she'll be hooked on the hobby for sure. Plus it'll be fun!

Ok, can someone explain "Bouef" to me? I get the feeling this is a BFI thing I missed.

Interesting. And remember- Jerry Lewis and his expressions. But I understand his appeal to the French just a bit more now.

Guess I'm just a backward, provencial American after all. Bouef.
