Default Am I a mutant?

I enjoy brewing more then I enjoy drinking. Does that make me a mutant?

I enjoy brewing more than I enjoy drinking too.

Hard call. As much as the two are connected, they are dissimilar experiences, so hard to compare. But since you're not really doing anything when you drink, and I like keeping busy, I went with brewing. And I have 40 gallons of bottled beer and most of my 10 fermenters full though so I guess that proves it.

I wouldn't be brewing if I didn't like to drink, but both are very enjoyable.

I am way more into the process than drinking the actual product. I love homebrew, don't get me wrong. But I am just fascinated by turning raw materials into something consumable and hitting your target numbers along the way.. Perhaps it's the challenge..

As for you being a mutant, that is still totally possible.. =)

I'd have to say that tasting, AKA sampling, AKA drinking, is part of the brewing process... so by saying brewing I'm also saying drinking... so yeah.

Man I wish you guys that like the brewing more than the drinking lived near me.
I would love to help you out with making room in another keg so you could keep the brewing going!

That being said, I enjoy the brewing but without the drinking it would be pointless to me.

I never would have started if I didn't enjoy very good beer. I enjoy it a lot!

I wouldn't say this is all too uncommon.
