.....your wife has an endless number of stories she tells at parties of coming home and finding beer on the kitchen floor, beer dripping out of a ceiling light fixture, beer soaked into the carpet, yada yada yada.

You hide evidence of brewing from certain visiting friends. Otherwise they'll never leave....

Your kids know what high krausen means. Or your son's name is Vorlauf.

You have multiple photos of your beer in full krausen on your phone to show your friends.

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

I went back to North Carolina for the first time since moving to Oregon, and I wrote down my "Unique Beer" count on Untappd to check what it was when I got back... it was well over 100.  A lot of taster trays, and a lot of single sips of someone else's but it counts!

I don't know about "A Homebrewer If", but you're sure as hell addicted to this forum "if"...you look to see what time last posts were made by others so you can tell if you've read them 1st thing, at noonish, mid-afternoon or after dinner.
Many of us would be on a strict liquid diet if it weren't for pretzels.

You love that my black lab is named Cascade and know that she is NOT named after dishwasher detergent.

... You write a dissertation and every name that you have to make anonymous becomes a hop name. Nobody on the panel questioned what a Simcoe School District was.

You might be a homebrewer if you have 5 refrigerators/freezers and only one is used for food.

You might be a home brewer if your idea of a DIY project is designing a new micro processor controlled stir plate and automating your gas burner to achieve just the right steeping temperature.

You might be a home brewer if you're adding a new kitchen sink and 240V line to one of your spare bedrooms.
