Boy I've done this quite a bit lately with my weekends consumed by Little League baseball.

I'll add: an innocent listen to Jamil's podcast in AM traffic leads to two hours blown once you arrive at work researching styles and recipes.

You spend half your shift reading every post on a home brewing forum (which you have the app for).

When your wife's had enough of you reading up on/talking about brewing towards the end of the day. Even though she's brewing her own now...

When a bubbling fermenter shows up in three of your dreams last night.

1.) you never see a piece of produce without wondering what the best method for adding it to a beer would be, or what style would be best to add it to
2.) you keep buying new carboys so you can brew yet another batch before the 6 you already have going finish fermenting.
3.) the word "liquor" no longer means whiskey or vodka to you
4.) your keep your kitchen sinks and counter spotless and sanitary not because you make food in there, but to keep it sanitary for brewing.
5.) you barely have any groceries in your house to eat, yet you have 30 pounds of brewing grains and 5 pounds of hops
6.) you feel wasteful when you drink a bottle of any unfiltered commercial beer without making a yeast starter
7.) you wash your yeast, but your car is filthy
8.) you consider cloning a beer that you don't even really like just for the challenge

I especially like #4. It's not like my kitchen was filthy before, but now that I brew in there it's like an operating room.

When the only items in your refrigerator are beers or beer-related items

You get upset when someone interrupts your bottling via phone call.

"Dude. I am bottling her from the bottom! Call back in an hour"
"An hour? Liar."
