Hmmmmm........

I told my wife that I was just taking care of a few billion friends, and that in return they would take care of me! ;D

Mine just told me at the start of the new year that I'm limited to 18 brew sessions a year.

Wife swap anyone?

Swmbo grumbles about the bottles, the equipment and the time.  Still-she knows it is my favorite hobby and I even catch her bragging up the product.

18 sessions is a good ammount, that'd be close to the "legal" limit if you do 10gal.

I just pick days and write them on the calendar and of course accomodate all her "hen parties"
Good Recipe, Good Ingredients, Good Procedure, Good Sanitation = Good Brew.

Looking ahead..............

Calendar or fiscal?  "That was a test batch, not a brew session, per se."  'John' was brewing here on my equipment, ergo his brew session not mine.  Gregorian or Julian calendar?  I was trying a new gadget.  I was  checking for leaks.  I needed to use these <XYZ> before they went bad.  Don't keep track.  'Lose' her notes if she does keep track.

Literally laughing out loud.

There is a loop hole in the 18-batch, or anyone's "limitations" in the form of two batches a day. I've done it with a brew bud in about 8 hours.  That's a long day but hey, I sit in an office pretending to work "some" days while covertly surfing my favorite brew sites.

Oh yeah, what do you do when your wife hates anything hoppy?

She does like sour Belgians however.  Still up for a swap?

This is, however, my wife.

She was a little younger then...
