Just heard this one today on Basic Brewing Radio and lol'd:

I was VERY surprised when my girlfriend informed me that she does NOT find the airlock blub blubs extremely relaxing...
Is there anything possibly more gratifying? I open fermented a saison recently and the lack of the "bulb blubs" was somewhat of a let down!

You might be a homebrewers if you know what (airlock) bulb blubs are!

Your family name is Irish so you carry a pack of Irish Moss in your pocket for St. Patrick's Day.                  Happy St. Patty's Day and don't forget the wearing of the green. 8)

...you remember the other Michael Jackson was a singer....

This happened to me the other weekend at the Northwest Homebrew Conference.  They announced a raffle prize winner as Michael Jackson (and supposedly it was a member of the OBC, but we weren't sure who it was) and my wife was like "Michael Jackson is in our club?" and I replied with "Michael Jackson the beer book author?" and she just looked perplexed and said "Thank you for busting out Michael Jackson the author...." Sadly I had forgotten in the context that Michael Jackson the author had passed away.

The AHA forum is bookmarked on your laptop.

You get both Zymurgy and BYO in the mail.

You haven't bought commercial beer in a while.



Cheers Everyone! My Friday starts tonight... 8) ;D

You drink a Guinness on Saint Patrick's Day and think to yourself "This is the BJCP Classic Example for Dry Irish Stout...."

If your wife has to wear a sweater in the house all summer because "we can't let the ale get too hot"

... You refer to your garage as your brew house.

... You schedule vacations around the need to rack, keg or bottle.

... Your vacations involve visiting as many microbreweries as possible.

If in the middle of the night your wife suggests you check on the baby and you walk toward the garage with a stopwatch to time the fermenting airlock's BPM

After one too many things like Quinoa Cream Ale and Kale Gruit, you foodie friends no longer tell you about the latest fad foods.
