When your 1990's garage fridge has been upgraded to have better climate control than your living quarters (constructed in 2011).

Carboys, growlers, six packs ...

Anything with beer in it.

How about this one,

When all of your pants start to fit, or be to tight, and you need a bigger pair. I used to need a belt just to keep my pants up.

When you consider drinking store bought beer as "research"

You have colour-coded containers for cervesia, brett, lactic, malo-lactic, and acetic cultures.

My parents always hoped I would pick up some culture when I grew up - they should be proud!

When it seems like your hobby is really doing dishes and cleaning the garage (where the mash and boil take place) and the basement (where the beer ferments). I spent hours cleaning the mash tun, kettle, fermenter etc. You also know you're a home brewer if you have a hangover, sore back and dishpan hands.

When you have had a really bad day and the only thing that puts a smile on your face is cleaning the kitchen in preparation for tomorrow. I had one of these on Thursday, the world was out to get me. Friday turned my weekend around to awesomeness as I re-brewed my ESB.
