No, no drinking really, I have enough trouble keeping it all going straight without adding that to the brew session...!

There is a small lighted porch near my brew area, hopefully bugs will go there.

I'll take pics!!

No drinking? I didn't think it was possible to brew beer without drinking. I crave a beer more than ever when brewing.

I rarely drink when I am making beer. I guess I just don't think about it.

Make sure you aren't too tired when you start, I have a bad habit of starting late and going into the early hours of the morning, and it really does get exhausting.

I have tried starting my brews late in the evening and brewing through the morning and I tell ya' it can get brutal once you start to get tired. The next day you start questioning everything as if it were the first beer you'd ever brewed.
I completely agree, couldn't have said it better.

(I know you!)

The only 2 times I didn't have a homebrew while brewing, something went terribly wrong. A 100% track record of having a problem when I don't have at least one while brewing.
