Default Has this happened to anyone else??

You decide to start hombrewing and stumble upon this site. You begin reading it every other day or so (in addition to The Complete Joy of Homebrewing). Then you begin to check the HBT site regularly, amazed at the DIY projects, the recipes, the pure ingenuity of homebrewers out there. Next you are reading threads at work, laughing aloud at RDWHAHB. Oops. And back at home, visualizing the spare bedroom as a future (and mini) brewroom/lounge. Every single day the possibilities seem unlimited.
I'm addicted AND LOVING IT!!!

You're only reading this site every other day? .....

Sounds like it's just a phase, no serious interest. It'll pass

I'm with ya! I'm on the night shift and when nights are slow (like last night) I'm on this site pretty much for the whole 8 hours.

I just unpacked my equipment today and am looking forward to getting my ingredients for my first two batches in the mail from AHS soon.

Can't wait to get some stuff bottled- the only problem is I have no room for kegging equipment, although I'm sure that's not too far around the corner!

Oh, yes. And then before you know it, you're a moderator of the biggest homebrewing forum on the internet.

isn't this how it goes Yooper?

"so I broke my leg - decided to learn to make wine to pass the time; took too long, so started getting into beer - 16,000+ posts later, yada, yada, yada"

but OP - yeah, same thing happened to me - made a couple extract batches with a friend, looked for some clone recipes, stumbled upon HBT, built an MLT, HLT, bought a CFC and a 15-gallon SS pot, yada, yada, yada....

welcome to the addicition

And then you notice you should actually give these guys a few beans just because you have wasted the last year of you life on this forum.

OH - yea - what other hobby can justify drinking vast amounts of beer.

Don't tell my boss, but my productivity has decreased SIGNIFICANTLY since discovering this site about 2 and a half weeks ago. And I'm forcing myself to stick to the Beginner Brewer, DIY Projects, and General Discussion forums for the most part. I found that once I started surfing around the other ones, my entire day flew by.

I haven't even finished my first batch yet, although I did rack it to the secondary last night for the first time. Very exciting. It looks so pretty in that shiny glass carboy.
