This. Definitely this. And it usually comes with "you care more about beer than you do about me!"

While I'm finally making the switch to AG as I slowly figure out how to make it work on my stove and small sink... it's just feeding my obsession in a very unhealthy way
I know the feeling. I'd love to at least have a propane fired system, but it ain't happening any time soon. AG in a small apartment on the stove, however, I'm able to make that work under less than ideal conditions (namely, I do partial boil AG).

I do that too! Grab a gallon of milk? Bam! Milk Stout! Need some instant oatmeal for the kids breakfast? Why not get the regular oatmeal? Bam! Oatmeal stout! Need chicken? Hmmmmm...didn't Papazian mention chicken ale in The Joy of Homebrewing? Naw. But, I could make beer butt chicken! Bam!

And then something we have all thought a time or two at the grocery store, "I sure wish they sold corn sugar. Why don't they anyway? It's not fair!"
