Default Addiction

So I've only been at this beer brewing thing a couple months, but my wife has diagnosed me with a brewing addiction. I ordered a recipe kit for my 3rd batch last night, to which SWMBO replied - "don't you already have 10 gallons in the basement?"

Yes I do, and that will soon grow to 15 gallons with an Irish Red.

Hi. I'm alexavery. And i'm an addict.

Hi alexavery.

Tell SWMBO not to worry, you're just getting started.

What you say is that you need MANY brews so you can age the beer properly.

I should have 200 gallons brewed this year - YET - I won't DRINK all 200! The real victors are my friends!

only on your third batch in a few months? Please. Call me when you have 8 fermenters full that you filled in a month then we can talk possible addiction.

Tell the SWMBO not to sweat it as you have a ways to go yet. I have spent over $5500 in the last year on brewing "stuff"...... so your situation could be worse.

I got back into brewing this spring, and have already done 4 batches, and the 1st isn't even ready to start drinking yet. SWMBO rolled her eyes at me, and let me buy a chest freezer to keep the kegs in, since the spare fridge would only hold 2.

I totally understand the addition. I love brweing so much that I started a home brew store. Now I have access to all of the stuff at anytime I want to go brew. My only savior is that I have kept my equipment costs in check as I am currently satisfied with what I have now. Of course a new brew pot may larger mash tun may be in order. Here we go again.

If your brew buddy looks like this, or can do this, then I'd understand if wifey was a little nervous.
