When your V8 Peach Mango spontaneously ferments after  months of being
open in the fridge and you.....TASTE it   :o

Then you build it up and BREW with it.....

I think I knew I was a homebrewer when I started growing hops in the garden.

Yup, I got six of my kegs in Portland OR. If you cut and tape them just right, cardboard bicycle boxes
hold three ball locks just fine.

How about when you realise you have 18 kegs to clean and sanitize and it actually makes you feel happy and satisfied? :)

You are welcome to come over any time and clean kegs at my house.  Glad to help improve your well-being.

A roll of duct tape minus the cardboard works well too.  ;D

You know you're a homebrewer when...

...You look for the brewing equipment potential of everything you see.

...You realize you're not buying a tasty beer just because the bottle are twist off.

...You ever ask yourself "Now how many points per gallon would this <insert potentially fermentable foodstuff> add to my beer/mead/cider?"
