Not only did you name your home brewery, but researched it so when you finally open your craft brewery, there are no copyright infringements to hassle with.

I make sweet tea so I can still drink something I brewed myself at those times when beer is "inappropriate."

When is beer "inappropriate"?

My sentiments exactly. I guess your not supposed to have it at work or something. I don't really understand.

When after only 9-10 brews, you're a confirmed AG brewer, you've copied 100 recipes, linked to 3 dozen more, because, well, maybe you should try a few proven recipes before you create your own. And you still peruse original recipes, and clone recipes of beers you like, because well, what if you run out of good recipes?

When you're sitting at work and call home and ask the SWMBO to take a video with her cell phone of the airlock bubbling so that you can monitor your brew from a distance. Mine laughed at me but then about 20 min later sent me a short video of a nice bubbling airlock.....she's a keeper!

porterguy... How about you switched over to all grain at batch #5 (#4 was the only partial mash)? I've made only one clone, everything else since the second batch has been my own recipe.

Another sign:
You spend a solid hour discussing brewing to a stranger (with a few more during the time) at the grocery store when you're there to simply get some more unfiltered, apple juice to ferment. Proudly showing pictures of your brewing hardware, kegging setup, labels and some pints.

When you have a bag of french fries in the oil at work, and all you can think about is "Nice Kreason"

When you get up in the morning,read the on line news,& come right to HBT. Then check the fermenter,& box up some recycled bottles,& wash the beer glasses.
