This site is AWESOME, but the downfall is I get so fired up to brew after I'm on here I can't stop brewing! I'm on my 3rd batch in 3 weeks and I don't see myself slowing down anytime soon... It doesn't help that my first batch (english pale ale) tastes great already after bottle conditioning for only 2 weeks. Somehow I managed to save out 29 pints of it (but I had to put it down in my crawl space so I can't get at them). Is there any known cure for my new addiction or should I just run with it until I have to hit the brew-aholics anonymous website instead?

I have already been thinking about this... I bought my dad a brewer's kit so he could get into my infatu... I mean hobby with me, but the problem is I needed a secondary and the only bucket I had was in his kit so I used that too. He might be getting a hoppy bucket for his b-day! I'm in deep man... As far as the ol' liver - IRON TANK BABY!

There used to be a guy named Bobbit that hung around here a lot...seems like I heard his wife figured out a way to cure him.

You guys... come on. You've seen the light, and you call it a disease?
Your minds are properly focused, your energies bent on this tiny cosmos of yeast and sugar-water... you are yeast-Gods.

If more of the world focused more on homebrewing, there would be no wars... only parties. And the farmer would be revered. The Bringer of the Barley.

Yea, we are making the world a better place, one bottle at a time.

You will be assimilated.
