I just cannot be trusted

My wife leaves to visit her mother for the weekend… 3 hours later I have a 2-tap Kegco Kegerator on order. I do believe with enough time and silence, I can rationalize most any decision.
What pushed this is my son wanted us to brew up an octoberfest… but to lager I need my freezer, but I need to have the freezer colder than lager temp to serve my active brew… see how easy that was.

A Good Wife will never interfere with Father and Son bonding.

Oh thats gold. I will go with that :slight_smile: . The bright side for the wife is that we won’t be tracking dusty footprints from the basement across the hardwood floors every time we go down to pour a brew. So it will pay for itself in no time. almost.

Way cool

Even though it’s disappearing fast, at least you can still see the entrance to the rabbit hole in your rearview mirror… LOL :joy:

Yes this obsession is killing our idea to downsize. I now find myself visualizing building a brew shed in the back yard with heat/ ac, sink etc…

You’ll need to post pictures! Sneezles61

The wife actually pushed me down that particular rabbit hole, but I brought a backhoe. She got a bonus at work, and wanted a keg with a bottle filler. The idea was to force-carb and then bottle the beer without “gross” sediment. When the wife wants you to start kegging you say “yes” – or rather you say, “Are you fu*%ing with me?!?” Followed by “yes”

Anyway I now have a 2-tap Kegco, with a coupe flow-control Perlicks, as well as few spare kegs. And a completely unused, still in the original box, counter-pressure bottle filler.

When I was looking for my first kegorator to replace the tap through the old fridge door unit I was eyeing some cheapo fake wood grain units from Sears. My wife said “if you are going to buy one, get a good one”. Well uh ok dear and thank you. Got a nice commercial type black and stainless Beverage Aire that lasted for years.

Sometimes they do surprise you.

Ironic, when I first started the wife was, " why do you spend all that time on this stuff"… Fast forward “I’d rather drink your brew than anyone elses”… But I still don’t have a purpose use kegerator… Sneezles61

My wife can care less what I’m up to as long as I stay in the basement. She only ventures down to watch baseball or football depending on the season.

Isn’t togetherness great – in small enough doses.

That’s why we get along. I don’t need her permission and she doesn’t need mine. We have our own hobbies and our own friends.
