    How about: When you walking through the juice isle and all you can think is "Hmmm I wonder if that will ferment". You're doing it right.

    A take on that one: All of your friends have fruit trees or berry bushes or they like to go pick berries at the local farms. They all talk about the jellies, pies, and cobblers they plan to make and all you can think is "Mead..." you're doing it right.

    When you've got 4 different kinds of fruits, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and you want to make as many combinations as possible... The first 2 in a mead, #2 & #3 in a mead, #3 & #4 in a mead, #1 & #3 in a mead, #1 & #4 in a mead, #2 & #4 in a mead, then you want to combine 3 in a mead; you're wondering if you'll need to invest in that 5 gallon bucket of honey you've been eying online... and you have to google the # of possible combinations for groups of 2 & 3 out of 4 unique members because you can't remember what you learned in math class... You're doing it right! :-D

    It's only 10, btw. :-)

    "Then glory in battle to Hrothgar was given, waxing of war-fame, that willingly kinsmen obeyed his bidding, till the boys grew to manhood, a numerous band. It burned in his spirit to urge his folk to found a great building, a mead-hall grander than men of the era ever had heard of, and in it to share with young and old all of the blessings the Lord had allowed him, save life and retainers." - Beowulf
