My justification is that most wouldn't appreciate good beer anyway and I'm providing all the homebrew for the rehearsal dinner so there.

When making eggnog and reach for your wort chiller/ice bath to cool the mixture down as quickly as possible so as to integrate the merigue without curdling.

(I did this last night. Put the hot mixture into an ice bath in the fridge.)

When SWMBO asks you why all the tupperware lids have tape with "5 min.", "10 min." written on them.

-When the Science teacher's disqualified your child's science project 2 years in a row.

-When you find half your child's science project missing and the jury is getting topless.

When SWMBO asks you to bring "that pumpkin ale you brewed" to thanksgiving, so that all her family will like you.

(Happened to me this thanksgiving - thanks yuri!)

When you leave the heater on while you go to work not for the dogs or so that it will be warm when SWMBO gets home, but so that you can condition your beer in time for Xmas. It's only a $100 heating bill for a $50 batch!
