The smartphone app rocks! I like it anyway, but you need to have stuff saved to the cloud first.

When instead of training the new kid at work you give him a lesson on brewing 101.

When your son taking high school biology is studying yeast respiration tells them that co2 and alcohol are yeast farts and yeast piss. He also was able to answer all the teachers questions about how they turn sugar into all those farts and piss. He also explains that he learned all that watching his dad brew beer. He was the hit of the class.

I loved geeking out talking yeast respiration at the dinner table with my son, my wife just rolled her eyes.

When your large fan is turned into a carboy dryer, your small fan is turned into a stir plate, your bath tub is really a swamp cooler, and your fridge is for cold crashing carboys and beer only.

When you horde beer bottles because, "..I'm going to use them for my next batch." And justify buying more craft brew to increase said collection of bottles.

Then you start kegging and retain said horde of bottles to "...hand out to friends" and "save some to see how it tastes down the road".

I'm not a horder yet, but getting there. For the labels, I just filled a rubbermaid tub, like what you would ice an keg in, half full of oxyclean water and just drop bottles in it. It just stays in garage now and gets dumped and refilled when the water gets nasty. Then on bottle day just run the delabled bottles through the dishwasher to sanitize and remove the label residue.
