Step 1 - Admitted that you love homebrewing and your recipes and brewing process are both managable.
Step 2 - Came to believe there is a brewer greater than yourself, and strive to out brew them.
Step 3 - Made a decision to brew when you can, and have faith that your significant other understands.
Step 4 - Made a searching brewing inventory and will make that trip to the LHBS if needed.
Step 5 - Admitted to God, yourself, and other human beings, that your homebrew ROCKS!
Step 6 - Were entirely ready to brew at a moments notice, since you can cold pitch your starters, which line the top shelf of your fridge.
Step 7 - Humbly asked for decent weather in which to brew, but if all else fails, the kitchen stove will do.
Step 8 - Made a list of all excuses used to call in sick at work in order to brew, and promise to not use the same one twice.
Step 9 - Made direct amends to your boss by bringing him a sixer of your best homebrew. (Damn it, now he's hooked)
Step 10 - Continues to take brewing inventory, and found out you still have all the ingredients you need to brew today.
Step 11 - Sought through books and professional brewing education to improve your homebrewing process, and make the best homebrew you can.
Step 12 - Having had a brewing awakening as a result of these steps, tried to carry the techniques and recipes to other homebrewers, and practice these principles in all your brew sessions.
Sounds like you are normal Evan!
