This me to the Tee! I was hooked the first brew day. Brewing is just one more of my DIY hobby/skills.

When I find out that people have been talking about my beers and everyone and their mom are asking me for a sample.

When people watch breaking bad and they are reminded of your homebrew setup.

When I started accepting donations for ingredients... and every gift from everyone I know began to be "beer stuff" - that's when I realized I had stumbled into the best hobby ever and started considering myself a homebrewer.

It's a conversation piece, for sure. People I don't even know, through friends or co-workers, know what I do. "Oh you're the guy that made the beer I had!" Kinda neat.

I guess when my beer was a peer group success. Also I started getting LHBS gift certificates. I still don't take myself too seriously. My husband thinks I have lost my mind though.

When I popped open my first extract brew from a kit. Color, head, taste, lacing, flavor. " I made this?"

When I did my first ground-grain-glass batches last December. I grew and malted my grain, used homegrown hops, and made a stout and a weizen. When those two brews turned out, I felt comfortable saying I'm a homebrewer, not just a guy who makes beer at home.
