Oh Yea, I know what you mean...I got my basic set up and started adding things, bottle tree, etc. Also was buying "expensive" beer so I could reuse the bottles and to try different beers, six pack a day. Then wound up buying a four keg set up including fridge before my first batch was even ready to bottle.... Now I've moved to all grain and still haven't bottled anything. And I have over 100 lbs of grain in my basement, hop rhizomes on the way, telephone poles for trellis Now I need to build a keezer, because we need the beer fridge for extra food because all of these damn people we have hanging around all of the sudden...LOL
