Whenever I want one. I brew on my own free time, so I never hesitate to open one if I want to. I think the earliest I have cracked on was 6am. I worked a graveyard EMS shift, then got home cracked a beer and went straight to brewing.

Woah man, I was just bustin your chops a little. Geez, is it too early for that?

Just apply fishing rules of drinking...coffee on the way to the lake, beer once you're in the boat, and around 10 its ok to hit the whisky. So, coffee while you get your grains milled and water filtered and heated. Beer when you are mashing and boiling. Whisky or more beer during clean up .

Personally my garage is a death trap so I stick to coffee when brewing or else I would end up slipping on a wrench, hitting my head on the brew kettle, and lighting myself on fire on the burner.

IMO, if you want a beer, drink a beer. Time is irrelevant.

I'm about to pour my first one of the day as I'm currently draining my first runnings from the MLT. Only waited this long because I don't want to be hammered by the time my boil is done today... that's been the trend over the last few brew sessions.

That was my dilemma! Once I get going the pace only seems to quicken. WIfe should be home in about an hour. We will see how it goes from there. Actually she will probably join me!

You cant drink all day if you dont start in the morning.

I go by my internal beer clock, sometimes the first beer is at 10 pm, sometimes its 8 am. it just depends on what I need to do, am I busy working or hanging out brewing?

I start drinking once the boil starts. As far as time, it doesn't matter. Started drinking yesterday around 11 while playing discgolf.
