When your weekend revolves around your "production schedule."
What? Non travel weekends are brew weekends!

I'll add: when you keep a hydrometer on the kitchen counter. How many of us do this?

when on your morning walk you look into the recycle buckets for usable bottle. And run home to get shopping bags to collect the 20 or so perfect bottles that someone just put out yelling as you enter the house, SCORE!!

You have coffee, a chocolate doughnut, and oatmeal for breakfast and all you can think of is brewing a breakfast stout clone.
Or you have coffee, chocolate, and oatmeal stouts for breakfast and pass out by noon.

Your neighbors come over constantly asking for beer for their party tonight...

Your 4-year-old daughter thinks bottling is a fun activity...

You have no problem dropping $500+ on a kettle, but think that's a ridiculous price for something to cook food with...

Around the age of 21 that might not have been far off.    ;)

Your new neighbors see you brewing in your garage and worry Walter White is living next door.  A month later they're lined up at your bar when the beer is ready (true story, more than once).

The neighborhood wives don't like you anymore because their husbands disappear, only to show up at your house drinking the latest offering.
