Wow 50? Would love to try them.

All I can smell in my little studio is spent grain that infuses into my clothing from a day of brewing. I hardly notice it but everyone that comes over mentions it, and I am constantly airing the place out.

Also when I first started brewing I was sitting at a Starbucks after picking up some new boots to brew in and some lady behind me mentioned to her friend that she smelled beer. I replied with, "Oh that would be me" and before I could say anything else as explanation she says, "Oh honey you need rehab badly"

I just laughed and put my earphones on.

those weren't 50 different belgians - at least 40 were duvels, with a few being orval, chimay, etc.

or did you mean my tripel? belgian thick-glass bottles are 33 cl, which is a little smaller than 12 oz. so whereas i might have gotten 48 regular bottles out of that batch, instead i got like 54 of the belgian bottles.

Either way sounds impressive. Are you going to drink them or age them? Or both?

When you pick up your 5 year old daughter from preschool and on the way home she says, "Hey Dad, after summer comes fall. Then it's time to make rauchbier."

Default You know you're a homebrewer when...

...while mixing hot water into your morning oatmeal, you can't help but think your spoon is a mash paddle and how can I fly sparge this?

You drive around expecting (at least hoping) to see Corny kegs in alleys, behind restaurants, at garage sales, at flea markets, at abandoned houses, at salvage yards...everywhere.

Now... the moment that one appliance flames out, you grab the spare tank and realize you didn't exchange it after the LAST flame-out... THAT moment sucks!
