For me, I think it was when I woke up for work at 4am and RAN to my fermentor to sniff the airlock of my first batch the day after I pitched

Actually, it's not really a hobby -- it's part of your post-apocalyptic skill set. ;-)

The day my kit arrived and I started brewing. I was completely hooked when I had brewed my first 2 batches and hadn't tasted either one due to being pregnant.

The day I finally started understanding all the different terms in brewing.

(still some anagrams I haven't figured out yet... but once I find what they stand for the understanding is there)

This was only about a year ago now that I brewed my first 1 gallon kit. About two months after that I brewed my first 5 gallon kit and it was all downhill from there...

Now with 4@6.5 gallon glass carboys, 1@5 gallon glass carboy, 1@6.5 gallon bottling bucket, 10 gallon brew kettle, 2 kegorators (3 taps total), 4@5 gallon ball lock keg, 2@5 gallon pin lock keg, multiple cappers (Think i am up to 3 now), a very large and still growing bottle collection. And enough beer in the pipeline to last me the next 6-7 months.

And yet... plenty more to buy...

I considered myself a home brewer when I brewed my first batch of beer... at home... I'm also a home vintner for similar reasons.
