So, my birthday was Sunday (June 4th) and I received a collection of grilling spices and sauces from my neighbor. The funny thing was that the first thing that popped into my head was "hey...these spices are in miniature grolsch style bottles...I can use them for homebrew". Not one thought about the spices.

Anyone have any similar stories?

Im sure this is a repeat of a previous thread, but I felt it needed to be re-visited.

You gained 20+ pounds in the first year of your new found "hobby".

... when you start eyeing everything in the house and wondering if you could ferment it.

When every piece of equipment of any kind that you see, you wonder what kind of brew gear you could cobble it into.

You can say things like "I rack by putting my cane into the hole, and once all the fluid is out, I plug the hole with my bung" with a completely straight face.

I was considering trying to ferment some North Carolina sweet iced tea. That stuff must have an OG of about 1.08 or so.

you consider 10 gallons of beer as 'not that much'...or you say things like, "ive only got 5 cases left!"

I read about an onion beer, but it sounded nasty. Thing is, I'm pretty sure it was using plain yellow onions; thinking a recipe using Vidalias (sp?) might be a little closer to drink-able. Still not sure I'd want 5 gallons of the stuff, though...
