You know you're a home brewer when.......
« on: June 22, 2011, 08:00:32 PM »
You have more fermented brew in the bucket than fits in the keg, so you go to the LHBS and get the CO2 cap that goes on the 2L soda bottles, but you don't have one of those so you go to the 7/11 and buy one, and not knowing what to do with the diet coke just dump it on the compost pile.......... :o

You're supposed to put Mentos in the diet coke.

You open your mailbox and you get 2 catalogs, one from Northern Brewer and your wife's Victoria's Secret and you look to see what's new at NB first. :-[

You see 30 gallons of beer in your closet and think you need to brew again

When you get upset with your kid's need to have cold juice boxes.  That fridge is for lagering!!!

When you become aroused by your wife's new perfume, Eau de Saaz,, and run into the garage to brew more beer.

...you take your sweetie for a drive to the country and instead of coming home with farm fresh produce, you come home with; 4 ten gallon cornies, 5 five gallon cornies, 2 keg kettles and a propane burner.  I had to, right?

You remember to dry hop, but forget to feed the dog.  Sorry Lucy :-[

As long as you didn't dry hop the pooch. Don't forget, hops are poisonous for dogs.

You wake up before the alarm goes off to start brewing at 5:00am Sunday morning but you have to force yourself to get out of bed at 7:00am on Monday to go to work. (True story this morning)

My wife likes to sleep in on weekends, to catch up on her sleep.  She just can't understand my getting up at 3:00 to turn on my electrics and then up again at 5:00 to mash in and start my brewday.  I'm pitching my yeast by the time she wanders in to get coffee!
