When your wife has to explain to your kid's preschool teacher why she painted a picture of a beer bottle with "DAD" across the top... (also, you hang picture on kegerator)

When you spend 6+ hours analyzing and charting the last 8 years of your water reports looking for patterns to best determine trends in your water chemistry.

Here's a good example - I had an exam in my Accounting class today. So I spent about 2 hours yesterday studying for the exam, but I spent about 3 hours studying brewing stuff. You gotta have priorities

Awesome! Or as I also posted in another thread, your 2 1/2 year old puts his water glass on his toy grill and proceeds to tell SWMBO that "I'm making beer!" (I'm still proud...)

Heheh yeah well I work in peoples homes and always judge them based off of how kick ass it would be for a party. Indoors, outdoors and parking. Also where my recording studio will be but now I have to fit in a brewery too. Those 2 floor 5 car garages get bonus points from me. The car can sit in the driveway.
