For me, I think it was when I woke up for work at 4am and RAN to my fermentor to sniff the airlock of my first batch the day after I pitched

There is a difference between pride and arrogance. Which do you hold in your heart?

Actually, it's not really a hobby -- it's part of your post-apocalyptic skill set. ;-)

The day my kit arrived and I started brewing. I was completely hooked when I had brewed my first 2 batches and hadn't tasted either one due to being pregnant.
Up Next: Mexican Cerveza and some generic Pilsner.
Primary: Empty. I must fix this issue.
Bottle Conditioning: Oatmeal Stout
Drinking: English Nut Brown Ale
Drinking: Irish Red Ale

Find me on Untappd: CelticDevilDog

"Early brewers were primarily women, mostly because it was deemed a woman's job. Mesopotamian men, of some 3,800 years ago, were obviously complete assclowns and had yet to realize the pleasure of brewing beer." - Beer Advocate

The day I finally started understanding all the different terms in brewing.

(still some anagrams I haven't figured out yet... but once I find what they stand for the understanding is there)

This was only about a year ago now that I brewed my first 1 gallon kit. About two months after that I brewed my first 5 gallon kit and it was all downhill from there...

Now with 4@6.5 gallon glass carboys, 1@5 gallon glass carboy, 1@6.5 gallon bottling bucket, 10 gallon brew kettle, 2 kegorators (3 taps total), 4@5 gallon ball lock keg, 2@5 gallon pin lock keg, multiple cappers (Think i am up to 3 now), a very large and still growing bottle collection. And enough beer in the pipeline to last me the next 6-7 months.

And yet... plenty more to buy...

I have so much brewed that I have run out of storage space. I need some friends to come over and enjoy the fruits of my labor.

Primary: apfelwein, cider exp.1 (US-05)
Secondary: oxygen
On Tap: apfelwein, blonde, white ipa
Next batch(es): Pilsen SMaSH, cider
