1) you keep adding carboys and kegs to up your storage space and pipeline.
2) you wake up in the middle of the night to jot a recipe down.
3) you are a techie, but eBay searches are now brewing related.

1) When your wife goes to hop in the shower and there is a Better Bottle already in there full of cleanser.

2) When the only birthday gift you give your friends anymore is 2 cases of their favorite style of your homebrew.

3) When you go to recycle cardboard boxes and find the top of the glass bottle recycling bin open, so you decide to grab all of the brown bottles out for future bottling.

When you go to get in the shower and think Damn this tub/shower would make an awesome mash tun. If I only had a way to insulate and cover. And ofcourse enough grain to put in it.

Wow you're awfully generous...2 cases? My friends are lucky if they get a 6 pack(even for their bday), of course they get to drink plenty when they come to my house.

How about when you can hardly part with a 6 pack, and usually will end up only giving away a 4 pack. It's my beer dammit! :-)

You happily do the dishes so your pint glasses don't go into the dishwasher.

You're careful about opening the garage door fearing the police or ATF might suspect something and pay you a visit.

Your children now refer to the downstairs storeroom as "The Beer Cave."
The best brew is the brew you brew.
