You give up your MSU football season ticket so you can stay home and:

Bottle an Octoberfest
Bottle a Heffe
Brew a Two Hearted Ale clone with harvested Bells yeast
Build your DIY Ebay Temp Controller
Add a dip tube to your bottling bucket
Harvest some Hefe yeast

To be fair, we are playing a cupcake team today and its going to rain

When the front study room becomes the computer room. Then you discover home beer brewing,& it becomes a brewery too. Then you start making plans for a man cave,& & &...Some french doors to close it off...one of those beer keg table & chair sets would be cool...a big screen TV for the opposite wall...then a fridge for bottled beers,yeast,etc....Oh nooooo,please God help me!...

When you design your basement with three drains in the middle if the floor in anticipation of future "disasters" in your brewery. Or just to make it easier to clean up by spraying it all down.

When you often read HBT or beer articles as you fall asleep to relax, and then do the same after the alarm goes of in the morning to ease into the day.

word. It's impossible for me to chill my wort to pitch temps using Texas tap water, in the summer our tap water is probably over 80, even with a pre-chiller I can only get it to mid 70's

You see a big end-of-season clearance display of coolers and think, "Oh look. Mash tuns."
