I enjoy the late night brewing myself. I tell my girlfriend I can't pitch yeast before midnight. Sort of like not feeding gremlins after midnight.

When its as hot as it is now in TX, I either get up and brew around 5-6am, or late at night.

It's definitely cooler but the ground water temps are still really warm. I ended up racking at 90f and putting it in ther fermemting fridge. I pitched this evening at about 72f. Brewing in this Texas heat can be a PITA!

I guess as long as it's his hot i should probably start using an ice bath as well as the I.C. Good luck on your brew!

It's almost midnight and I'm just about to start a 60 min boil. Should be pitching by 1:30am. Glad to hear I'm not the only one...

I just finished my brewday. I agree the Texas heat is a real PITA. When I started it was 106, its still above 90 right now. Took me 30 min to get wort down to 80. That's using a plate chiller with a 40' pr-chiller. Now its in the fermentation fridge cooling down to 67.
