You get really mad when people use your fermentation chamber to hang cloths and store things, and the "but it's a closet" argument still doesn't make any sense.

CO2 tanks? And how much to fill if you don;t mind me asking?

I got ripped off last refill so am thinking about getting a larger tank.

You buy something that you lack the required prescription for on ebay... to use as a low-flow regulator for an O2 tank to aerate your wort.
Please do not reply if your an evil alien!

I need to get a bigger tank. The five pounders are a real PITA.

Anyway...you know you're a homebrewer when you add beer to your BBQ sauce.  8)

You know you're a home brewer when you go to a picnic and someone shows up with a cooler and you size it up for where to drill the holes........ :o :o :o

+1  :)

You know you're a homebrewer when you are grabbing leftovers and realize that a slow cooker + a Love controller = a mash tun for those small batches you've been wanting to do...
Is that a counter-pressure bottle filler in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

Things I've added beer to this year - chili (pale ale, brown ale, or anything), punkin pie (punkin ale), baked cod (wit), tacos (any wheat), brats (obvious), and I have homebrew stout beef stew cooking right now. I think I'll have to add some to my turkey brine this year.

I tried adding beer to salad dressing too, but that didn't work out.

Try replacing the vinegar in a salad dressing with something like Rodenbach Grand Cru. ;)

Sort of like the salad dressing from NHC in San Diego by Sean Paxton, except I think he made an AA vinaigrette.

...or try this Orange and Ale Vinaigrette by Sean
