It really depends. I may have one or two beers (homebrew or store-bought), but I just as often don't.

Yeah, my last brew was on a weekday, and I had to work later. No beer. I said then that it would be the last time I brewed during the week! Didn't like it at all.

I usually have one during the brewing, and then a couple while I clean up. Makes that part a little more enjoyable.

Civilized people wait until the boil to start drinking.

I started my strike water at about 8am. I'm trying to hold off until I start my boil before pouring my first one.

great minds think alike

I picked the first selection (Yes, but only HomeBrew) but I only do so if brewing in the afternoon/evening. When brewing in the morning, it's usually a glass of iced tea or, if I start early enough, a cup of coffee.

Voted for anything. But almost always it is home brew. Usually only drink a couple though.

I usually drink 6 to 8 beers (almost always homebrew) while brewing. All of my brews have come out excellint from the first ot the last (I have only brewed 11 batches so far). I have only brewed on friday and saturday evenings and start about 6 or 7. I can brew all grain brew (5 gallons) in about 4 or 5 hours (includes clean-up) I usually am pretty toasted when I am done brewing. I am drink some homebrew right now.
