I can't quit. I've brewed 4 of the last 4 weekends and I've got one planned for next. Is there an organization that can help?

i've already been told i border on the "obsessed"...i have 16 gallons of stuff fermenting in my closet as i write this (5 gal apfelwein, 5 gal bock, 2 bottled cases of honey hefeweizen, and a 1 gallon experimental blueberry hard cider...).

people who overhear me talk about this stuff and then find out i started learning about it a few months ago tend to be the ones who label me as "obsessed"...the ones who drink my brew don't question it and just reap the benefits.

10 Gallons going right now: Weizen and Porter.

I have two more batch planned for the next: A Pale and a Pumkpin Ale

With the Apfelwein I have planned that's 25 Gallons of drink... What can I say, I enjoy the hobby as well.

Cheers everyone!

Most of us are obsessed and proud of it. I personally have roughly 18 cases of 11 differents brews in bottles that's all ready to drink, 1 in secondary, 1 in primary, another one planned for sometime this week, with 1 apfelwine going and the ingredients ready for another apfelwine.

I make it faster than I can drink it. I guess that there are worse problems in life to have...

Does the fact that when I'm not brewing, I'm writing beer recipes or hanging out here reading about beer mean I have a hobby or an obsession? I think I might have crossed that fine line.....
