Okay,

maybe my hobby is making me crazy, but I've been having dreams about brewing....

the other night, I dreamt that I have a really hot ale fermentation. So hot that it blew the lid and steam was coming out! My friends all said it smelled like crap and was spoiled, but I fired back: "Revvy said it will be okay! Just give it time!"

But, then again, I dream about fishing as well (my other hobby, which I haven't touched since I've started getting serious about brewing).

Does daydreaming count, because I think about beer/brewing all day long.

LOL last night I was having nightmares that my blowoff tube clogged and I had yeast all over the room.

If dreaming about brewing is wrong...I don't want to be right.

I've dreamnt about brewing alot since I started...I even once dremed I brewed on of Cheezydemon's caramel beers. The last 2.5 months I've been taking Chantix to quit smoking, and my dreams have been very very vivid, and detailed, and a lot of them have been about brewing. Last night's had a lot to do with Belgian Beers.

Dreaming is not really a problem. I hate it when my mind is racing about recipes/techniques/etc. while I'm laying there trying to fall asleep. I've tossed and turned for two hours before I finally drifted off because my mind was consumed with thoughts about beer.

Not really a dream about brewing but I had this crazy dream the other night where someone stole my truck and was throwing those .5L German bottles at me and breaking them in the parking lot. And for some reason all I could remember thinking, as I was dodging bottles, was that I was f@$#%ing pissed off because I'm trying to collect as many of those as I can for bottling.

I really don't dream about it now. But the months leading up to my starting, when I was researching and deciding how I wanted to go about it, were filled with thoughts of brewing when I went to sleep and when I woke up my very first thought every morning was about brewing, and I dreamed constantly about it. It still is constantly on the fringe of my mind whatever I'm doing. Is it wrong? No way!! It's just passion!
