LOL! That one made me laugh out loud. SWMBO thought it was funny too.

This should be: when your homebrewing library will no longer fit on the tank of the toilet.


201) when you try a beer at a local micropub and start attempting to identify the hops used.

202) You regularily flip through chemistry equipment supply catalogs looking for cool/interesting new equipment that is completely unnecessary.

203) You begin dreaming about living in a small brewshed in the woods, sleeping on a bare cot, and wearing loose fitting robes.

204) You berate the telemarketer who calls you trying to get you to sign up for a magazine subscription for not carrying Zymurgy, BYO, or other homebrewing magazines.

205) you sniff all active airlocks at least twice a day, and encourage your housemates, guests, and SWMBO to do so as well.

206) you've come to terms with the primary only vs. secondary debate and do whatever you want anyways because it's your beer.

207) you play some romatic/sex/love songs on the stereo for your yeast during the lag phase - like you used to do when wooing SWMBO.

208) you've considered buying a microscope and hemacytometer, then realized it's overkill unless you name is Jamil Z.

209) you actually clean the kitchen, like she asked you to - just not for the same reasons anymore.

210) you've pretty much stopped buying any commercial beer that isn't in a reusable bottle.

211) You've considered dressing up as a yeast cell for halloween.

212) The only time you get road rage is when driving home from the LHBS, otherwise you're always cool and relaxed.

213) you habitually leave the last oz. of liquid in every bottle after pouring even commercial brew, regardless of whether it's bottle conditioned.

214) your pet's drink your wort.

215) you no longer picture your hot SWMBO in a sexy thong, but rather wrapped in shiny stainless steel.

216) the saddest day of your life was pouring out those infected 5 gallons.

that's all I got for now

edit: wait, one more

217) you know the relevance/history of Ninkasi, Gambrinus, and the honeymoon.

NEVER!

218) The happiest day of your life is when you found that the infected batch you bottled actually carbonated. And tastes good.

219) Sunday is known by friends, family, and SWMBO as Brewday.
220) You have enough beer-style specific glasses to mystify guests looking for "a glass of water"
221) You sneak in an application to the Microbio/Fermentation Chem PhD program at UC Davis while applying to MD programs, just for gits and shiggles.

224) You have taken a gulp or two of star-san, just to prove to your friend that the foam won't ruin the beer.
