When you have over 100 bottles,can't fill all of them at any given time. But you keep trying. Then hunt for better boxes to put them in. And your freezer,fridge,& pantry have brewing stuff taking up space. Then,the comp room starts turning into a make-shift man cave...Couldn't be me,no not me...

When you brew and bottle up two cases and want to brew another two cases for which you don't have bottles for so it's off to the LHBS to buy more bottles. But do you buy an extra two cases of bottles? Nooooo!

Was going to say that is me but my brewing isn't even that organized. I am a stop at the LHBS day before kinda guy.

When your spelling mistakes have been corrected by Shecky on HBT for misspelling in a thread title.

When you go to the hardware store for something completely unrelated to brewing and you end up wandering the aisles for half an hour looking over hardware just to see if there's anything that you need to modify your brew setup.

And then you arrive back home with twice as much stuff as you were supposed to get, with the extra being for use in brewing, or brewing related.

My last several trips to hardware stores have been brewing related/driven.

Instead of buying batteries and flashlights that SWMBO sent you out for, so you are hurricane-prepared, you buy a co2 tank and some other hardware so's you can have five gallons of homebrew on tap during the impending natural disaster, instead.

...when you pour a can of campbells tomato soup into a pot and leave about 1/8" in the bottom of the can.
Almost lost a mouthfull of beer on that one. I haven't done that with soup, yet. However, I have to keep telling myself when pouring a comercial beer that I don't need to leave the dregs.
