When you realize you will be at least a case short of empty bottles needed for a planned bottling session on the weekend, and resolve to just drink more this week.

... you realize that you can clean everything in the house, and make it look like new, with the same chemical agents used for your brewing grear.

... you get yelled at by the neighborhood gardeners association for attempting to rent community garden space, which sole purpose is to grow hops.

When you stall the waiter on ordering your dinner because you want to make sure your beer is gone first. Food may kill the flavor of the beer.

When you stage your evening of IPA drinking so that you have the one you havent tried before, first. You need to make sure you are smelling and tasting on a fresh palate to give it the fairest review.

When you know you'll get fat if you drink beer and eat food around the same time (your body will prioritize the beer and store the food as fat) so you eat a 100 calorie salad, wait an hour... Then drink!

When the above plan fails and you're getting fat anyway.

When you put your home brew in the back of the fridge for fear that someone will hit the bottle and rustle up the yeast.

When you yell at your wife for putting your beer on the door of the fridge for the very same reason.

When you come home from a long day of work to find the beer you were about to enjoy on its side in the fridge and you instantly give said roommate or wife an earful and a lesson on why they can't do that.

When you just realized you told your wife exactly how to get you to drink less in the evening.

lame. The getting yelled at part. It's not like you are growing pot.

When you give your yeast starter a pep talk like they're going to play in the superbowl!

This used to be my problem, but now it's the other way around...

You know you're a home brewer when you have enough boxes of empty bottles to stack a full pallet!

I finally scored a couple corny kegs last week. All I need is a fridge now. When I start kegging I'll be donating some of my 500+ bottles

When you ask a local microbrewery if you could spend your vacation helping them brew for free.
