......or if you stop buying past-their-prime IPAs at the liquor store because you know you can brew better and fresher at home.

When you spill beer, clean it up with a shop vac, forget about it till 2 weeks later when the fruit flies are suddenly a horde, then you open the shop vac and think about going to get your hydrometer before you dump it
