I'm planning recipes for late may/early june right now.
I always know the next two things I'm making.
And I have the ingredients for my next two beers already.

Am I obsessed with brewing or building?

I'm pretty obsessed. I think about it almost as much as the other thing guys think a lot about. I'm also jealous of Bobby_M. I thought I had a pretty cool keg set-up until I saw his!

Current plans don't have me home until November, but already have first two batches of wine, one of mead, and two of beer planned, and was just looking for third beer earlier.

If I can't afford to brew, I'm checking things out here...Like 2 hours a day? SWMBO Says more.
I have a whole lot of lists on my Microsoft one Note...that way I can add to it either at home or at work. One for nest brew(S) one for things to pick on the next trip to town (at the LHBS) I brew some wine and mead in Milk Jugs...just to keep me occupied...may never even bottle, but if the urge or a recipe strikes me....I'm off to the kitchen.
I get bottles form the local bar (Wish I could call it a pub!) not too many...26 cases last week. SWMBO Says I have to stop when I get to 200. I love that woman. I never drank much till I started brewing again...Now I drink almost every night...just because I need the room on the shelves.
This weekend I intend to buy SWMBO a $1500 fridge...just so I can drill holes in the door of the old one and rip out the shelves.
and for me...I'd say this is not really one of the more passionate things I do.
Seriously. I'm here for BEER
It's Not The Size Of Your Rig That Counts....It's How Often You Use It.

This is definetely(spelling) an all consuming hobby for myself. I love snowboarding but did not get out once this year because every time I had some extra cash I just went and bought a carboy or some ingredients or a bunch of small crap for brewing.

oh and not to mention that I hate gardening but I spend 5 hours the other day I had off to plant my rhizomes

I moved 1600 miles away from home just to try and find a brewing job.

Ok, every guy who has done this raise their hand.

It's amazing how easy it is to agree with SWMBO on a new fridge when you secretly want the old one in the garage.
