I have been brewing for a year now, and I have realized I am an addict.
I go to my basement to look at my fermenters bubbling, I polish my Blichmann to like-new condition, I read brewing catalogs and magazines like they are the latest issue of Playboy.
I have a list of beers I want to brew that'd take me years to do, I want to spend thousands of dollars on delicious new equipment when my crappy aluminum pots make do. I travel around the country trying great Craft Beer, sometimes to the detriment of my profession the following morning.
I love reading threads on HBT, helping those less experienced while learning from the HBT jedis. I check Homebrewfinds several times a day for deals. I have a dozen brewing books with dozens more I want to read.
What do I do? Do you share this addiction? What to you do?
My biggest problem is that I don't think any of this is truly a problem. My wife tolerates it, my friends love the free beer, and I am respectful of my budget, this is a fairly cheap mid-life crisis.
I literally dream of brewing wonderful beer.
Anyone who can offer advice / help, it would be tremendously appreciated.
