Default addiction?

so is there an addiction for home brewing? If so, I have it. I am still waiting on my first brew to finish "aging" in the bottle, and I already have 5 gal in the carboy, a hefe coming in the mail, and cider supplies and a braggot coming in the mail. I am also on this website every day. Keging is my next venture!

My first batch was a brown ale. A week later (this weekend), I am putting in three more batches (irish red, apfel, tripel).

Addiction implies that it is a bad thing.

To me that sounds completely normal.

Hombrewing is A-retentive and labor intensive. Anybody willing to do it is probably obsessive-compulsive anyway.

That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

I'm also addicted.

I currently have 9 cases of beer in my closet. A pale ale and hefe that need to be bottled. And a Scottish 80/- i'll be brewing this weekend. I have more beer than i am able to drink. But i suppose there are worse problems to have.

This might not seem like a lot, but I've only been brewing for 3 months...

It is addictive. I dont have much patience for waiting, so getting another batch going while one is conditioning helps with my compulsions

Luckily I have other hobbies that take up a bunch of time, so I have a distraction from waiting on beer to finish up

I can't wait to start my braggot but I am not looking forward to waiting for 6-8 months! I am brewing it for Christmas presents. This addiction is teaching me delayed gratification!
