Default Brew Days? What is yours?

I find that I have less time on Saturday and Sunday to brew than the rest of the people here. What ends up happening is I read all the lovely posts about what is brewing, plan my own and then set out on Tuesday to create my beers. What brew days do you brew on mostly and how often. Right now I am on a two week turnaround roughly where it seems that every two weeks I realize that my beer on tap is almost out, my fermenter is almost ready and I don't have any more mild...!

Sometimes on Saturdays, but mostly on Sundays.

Less in the summer and more in the winter, probably a 2 - 3 times a month average.

The wife get days off during the week, but works most Saturdays. That's becoming my day of choice for brewing. Bottle, keg and racking are weekday evening projects.

Nobody has voted "every day all day" yet. I guess DeathBrewer hasn't found this thread yet.

SWMBO works every other Saturday so I brew while she is at work.

Sundays tend to be my default brew days because Saturday is rugby day!

I'm off to a late start today, so I may (GASP) forgo brewing today.

Evenings of any day qualify as brew chore days- transfering, bottling, kegging, etc.

Brewing on the weekends, tending misc items on weekdays.

Drinking whenever.

I usually brew on weekends, about twice a month, but sometimes I'll go a month without brewing if I'm busy. This week I'm going to try brewing on Friday after work because we're heading to a cask event on Saturday. I really like to brew in the early morning, cause I'm a morning person.

Usually 3 Sundays a month I get to brew. I'm actually out-brewing my drinking capacity. I've been giving away beer too much lately to friends so I can brew more!

Whenever it is possible which varies GREATLY!

With two little munchkins it is very tricky. Usually EARLY a.m. (before the sun) or LATE p.m. (into the wee small hours...)

I did not vote because the options are WAY too uniform and regular to apply to me!
