You start getting nervous when you get below several hundred beers in the cellar.

When 100% of your hygiene skill goes to beermaking, and you forget how to shower and brush teeth.

When you enter the beer isle at the store, and never leave it happy.

2) Every time you're on the computer and SWMBO hears you laughing and asks why, you just respond "brewing sh!t" to keep from getting yelled at after explaining whatever drawn out brewing related humorous thing you're laughing at.

you only buy a commercial beer when you want to culture the yeast from the bottle

I love good commercials. Craft commercial. Probably the one thing I am hesitant about is not being able to drink as much of it.

-you read books about brewing while at work
-you brew 2 batches for every 1 you drink
-when people try to enter your conversation about brewing and really have no idea what you're talking about, you just continue to speak in brew-talk just so you can keep talking about brewing

When looking at new homes, your biggest consideration is: "How will this setup work for a home brewery?"
