Grandma's Cunning Prank

Yet again, the stories and anecdotes unfold as I peruse over my great aunt's narratives. While reading about my great-great grandfather, I encountered this little gem as told by my great aunt:

"William made homemade 'Brew...' From this following story I get the impression that Grandma...didn't appreciate this very much. When William would leave to go to work—Ida put SALT into the mixture—she said the first time this happened it was by accident—but then she kept putting salt in the mixture every time William would make it...William blamed the failed brew on water and finally stopped making any. Can’t you just imagine Ida smiling in the background? Sounds like quite an ingenious lady."
