You go willingly with your wife to the kitchen gadgets department instead of wandering off separately to the DIY department. You then try to convince her that she REALLY needs that thing you never knew existed until it started to look like a hop filter.

i only got away with that one after bringing him a million different samples

You build a walk-in fridge in the basement...not because that is the most temperature stable area in the house, but because if there is a tornado you're less likely to loose beer and die sober.

I put the keezer in the room in the basement where we go if there is a tornado. Figuring if the house were to collapse and we were trapped, I could live off my beer for weeks.

SWMBO assumes any box thats left at the door is for you and automatically puts it in your brew space.

You scoff at any bar or food joint that has a smaller beer selection than your keezer or beer fridge.

You've learned or practiced more craftsman skills to support your addiction than to take care of your home or car.

SWMBO is encouraging you to build an all electric system so the kitchen "will stop looking like a meth lab"

Spend more time on homebrewtalk forums at work doing beer talk things instead of work.

I just got in trouble for this. "Next time you're fired." "But beer!"

When you call your neighbor while you are at work and ask him to come over and check to see if an airlock has clogged
