I enjoy brewing more then I enjoy drinking. Does that make me a mutant?

Hard call. As much as the two are connected, they are dissimilar experiences, so hard to compare. But since you're not really doing anything when you drink, and I like keeping busy, I went with brewing. And I have 40 gallons of bottled beer and most of my 10 fermenters full though so I guess that proves it.

I wouldn't be brewing if I didn't like to drink, but both are very enjoyable.

I am way more into the process than drinking the actual product. I love homebrew, don't get me wrong. But I am just fascinated by turning raw materials into something consumable and hitting your target numbers along the way.. Perhaps it's the challenge..

As for you being a mutant, that is still totally possible.. =)

I'd have to say that tasting, AKA sampling, AKA drinking, is part of the brewing process... so by saying brewing I'm also saying drinking... so yeah.

Man I wish you guys that like the brewing more than the drinking lived near me.
I would love to help you out with making room in another keg so you could keep the brewing going!

That being said, I enjoy the brewing but without the drinking it would be pointless to me.

I never would have started if I didn't enjoy very good beer. I enjoy it a lot!
Let's see if I keep this updated!

On tap
Black Butte clone

In secondary
Pumpkin ale

In primary
Honey wit

Up next.. Firestone Union Jack clone

I wouldn't say this is all too uncommon.
