When your SWMBO has used yeast with the brand name "Fermentis" in the bread machine.

When you're happy to give all your friends beer, but if they forget to return the bottles, they are no longer your friends

When the waiter at the BYOB takes your empty homebrew bottle and its takes your whole force of will not to interrupt polite conversation to demand your bottle back...

When your buddy shows up to BYOB restaurant with commercial beer and you wonder, "didn't he read the sign?"

Your boss catches you pulling bottles out of the office garbage and wonders if you are getting paid enough... then when you explain he offers to trade you empties for full bottles of homebrew at a 1:1 ratio

When flocculation stops sounding dirty

This is where you say "oh I was simply thinking about how gorgeous you are, and was wondering if you'd like me to make you up a special batch of (whatever you want to brew) to show my appreciation"

When you can tell who's been drinking on this forum, and who was sober bob. Me for instance, was sober Jim! Well, I guess I still am. But anyway, enough of that, next!

the moment when you start going outside the laws of fundamental physics, and reap reward for the troubles involved.. such as only drinking half a beer, to top the rest up with another kind. Yes, this was and is rewarding, for me anyway! Included both coz I can't remember if I've finished it yet or not

The moment when you make a homebrew beer slush puppy..

Someone mentions how many weeks are left in school and you think if you can make a batch of Apelfwein in time for the graduation

Confused. What does this have to do with brewing?

That could be it. But I just didn't think of it. In the south it's hard to have a reason to warm the fermentation chamber.
