10) You look at your massively infected wort and think “why can’t it be me? please take me instead”.

9) You think that Charlie Papazian kinda resembles Jesus/Moses a little more each time you look at his book.

8) Grocery lists consists of “fermentables” and “others”.

7) You view everyday workplace objects (recycle bins, garbage cans, water coolers, photocopier toner cartridges,) in terms gallons, pints and quarts.

6) Forgotten weddings, birthdays, & anniversaries are real bummers only for the fact that they now interfere with your brew-day plans.

5) You look down on people who drink Bud/Molson/Coors/Miller but are really thankful you aren’t a snob like “those pretentious wine lover pansies”

4) You include your kids: Vienna, Cascade and Crystal on brew-day.

3) You judge a potential spouse/girlfriend in terms of Original Gravity and Final Gravity.

2) Posting siphoning methods on the internet for other fellas to read does not make you feel uncomfortable.

and..............



1) Spending two weekends, $300.00 and several trips to the hardware store by making a gadget to save 5 minutes of time when brewing makes perfect sense to you…and you also compelled to explain that to the spouse.

Okay this will be slightly of topic.
Brewer is a chemist
Vinter is a pretensious ass that likes to take credit for an accident
distiller is the scavanger
I thought it went along w/ this thread maybe not.

"If you scan the Belgian Ales at checkout yourself so the clerk won't disturb the yeast sediment."

I bet Agassi likes this one.

How about:
  • If you've ever argued with your wife because of The Smell.
  • When your non-brewing friends start to drink wine because they're bored with you explaining beer to them.
  • You spend more time in the kitchen aisle of Target than anywhere else, in hopes of finding the perfect strainer.
  • If you'd need a recylcing bin larger than your living room to get rid of all your brown bottles.
  • If you casually drop the verb "lager" in sentences.
  • If you've ever cleared the room of even yourself and the dog because you couldn't wait three weeks to try your new brew.
  • If you order a malted shake and suddenly want to start brewing.
  • If you use Sweet & Low in your coffee and 9 pounds of sugar in your wort.
  • You have a beverage selection that would be the envy of the local rennaisance fair.
  • Finally, you might be a redneck - er, I mean a brewer - if you can translate this: go to the LHBS, get some DME and LME, a new primary, some tet, a pound of 20L and some hulls.
