Default You know you're a home brewer when?

When you have 100plus bottles and dont plan on bottling again

When you have over 100 bottles,can't fill all of them at any given time. But you keep trying. Then hunt for better boxes to put them in. And your freezer,fridge,& pantry have brewing stuff taking up space. Then,the comp room starts turning into a make-shift man cave...Couldn't be me,no not me...

When you get down to 100 beers bottled and say "man I'm getting low, better brew"

When you run out of beer and start drinking flat, half fermented, wort, but lie to yourself by saying "But I had to take a gravity reading!"

You mark the change of seasons by beer styles instead of a calendar.

When you start drinking the beer below the spigot level,convincing yourself that you don't really need that auto siphon.
Then,you realize there's 4-6 bottles worth under there. Damn,I'm missing another 6'r!...

When you brew and bottle up two cases and want to brew another two cases for which you don't have bottles for so it's off to the LHBS to buy more bottles. But do you buy an extra two cases of bottles? Nooooo!

When you brew and bottle up four cases and then throw a party to empty your bottles so you can brew another batch.
