You start planning what beer you're going to brew for your 7-year old's birthday party in April.

You stop having people over because you don't want to waste your beer on THEM.

When you pour water into a pitcher for drinking and try not to splash because you might oxygenate it.

You make up questions with made up words about beer during Battle of Sexes ... and the women's team believes you.

Btw, if anyone asks, "spitznaggen" is a variety of hop.

When you get on Amazon and all their suggestions involve homebrewing equipment or ingredient kits...

When you do research to see if bird seed would mash well [no it wont]

When the bird and squirrel population has tripled, just from your dumped grains in the back yard. Then you think maybe I could hunt them with my pellet gun and save on buying meat... I really need more fermenters.

When a lady friend comes over and asks why your house always smeels sweet like youve been baking, and you show her a sack of grain and a SS pot.

When you call the grocery store up and tell them that {insert favorite apple orchard here] has a great blend this year and they need to put in a triple order, and they do.

When you know all the local orchards phone numbers by heart.

When you have a key bowl buy your door because at this party your butsting out a 12% braggot that is deceptively sweet and tasty

when you 3 year old son calls an glass container a carboy, or knows what it means when you tell them to go get your hydrometer.

When you switch to 1.25 gallon batches just because you like to brew 2-3 times a week.

I got more but my glass is empty
