When it's 10 degrees outside and your boiling wort in your garage wearing a ski suit, gloves and a parka as people drive by and just shake their heads.

When SWMBO is intimately familiar with your brew schedule and is able to anticipate when you're going to brew deviant to said schedule.
The only thing more asinine than stupid rules is the enforcement of rules simply because they are the rules.

When you look at the hook from an old shower cleaning apparatus, and say 'huh, that would make a great hop bag holder for the keggle', and dismiss the thought...

and six months later, after scrubbing said hook to the hilt, throw the shower cleaning device out - in order to use the hook for said purpose...

When it's hot all week and see that tonight the temperature is going down into the 50's and can't help but think of the word refrigeration. So I wheel my conical and 2 primaries that are running in mid 70's from the krausen spike outside at 10pm and set my alarm for 6am to bring back inside. What do you know? It's fermenting at 66 now! Less fusels/esters being produced now :-)

When, at the end of a long afternoon brew session wherein nothing has gone right, you stand beside that white bucket with the blue lid and think, "I have made beer!"

Now feast, you yeast!

You go to the local "arts, beats & eats" festival, discover it is sponsored by AB-INBEV, and wander aimlessly for 45 minutes looking for craft beer choices that are not ShockTop. (Thankfully I found Rochester Mills and some New Belgum)
