When you are staring off into space and your wife says "hey, your thinking about brewing aren't you?" then shakes her head and walks away because you were and couldnt come up with a no answer quick enough

All I meant was that I've read Revvy, Union, and all the others repeat their experience on basic questions so much that I know exactly how to answer many n00b threads despite a lack of experience (I'm currently seeking to remedy that). Thanks to everyone who shares info.

When your wife is willing to go buy your grain at the LHBS because you get a promotion at work and can't make it to the shop before they close.

Haha my wife went to the "brew HQ" today for me. She's 7 months pregnant and doesn't like beer.

Your idea of a workout regiment involves lifting full kegs into a keezer followed by 6 to 10 sets of 16oz curls.

(For us betrothed female brewers).... you dream about ways to gently shove your hubby out of his 'man-space' in the garage by drawing up plans to build and install a kick- ass all-grain brewing station...

You spoil the worms in your vermicomposting system with nothing but the best variety of spent grains.... nothing but the best, worms, and don't you forget it!

Ah,gotcha. I for one was waiting for a clearer answer to which way that one was headed. We've seen so many posts that seem to go the other way,ya just kinda expect it,I guess.
When you're glad the cold weather is actually making your current brew ferment cleaner.
