I feel ya man! I like to try and get a parti-gyle out of every batch if I can. My buddy and I got carried away one day and did a quadruple brew. It was chaos. Check it out!

Tonight, I have the sounds of sirens and radio to clutter my head, but give me a few days and I'll be brewing a double of Irish Red and SA Summer Ale while listening to the night sounds of the nearby forest.

Happy Brewing!
I'm on a 6 month night rotation right now. I get home and my wife takes off to work, makes for a perfect time to grab a brew and work on my brew stand. Morning drinking gets a bad rap. Heres what I got so far.

What a lot of normal sun chasers don't realize is that their breakfast time is our dinner time. Someone asked me the other day if I gave any thought about what it looked liked drinking early in the morning. My question to them was this: Do you find it odd going to grab a cold beer and burger after knocking out a 12-14 hour shift? They would answer of course not. They didn't see anything wrong with having a beer with supper after work. My reply right back was that often, I'll get home, or either stop on the way home and order a complete supper type meal. Many times, I've cooked a complete dinner spread and was eating a meat and three before 0800hrs.

In the morning when I get home, more than likely, I'll boil two sausage dogs and pour a cold homebrew. I don't make it a habit to drink in the morning hours, but mainly it's related to how long it will be before I'm back on shift, or perhaps what the honey dues are like. If I know I'm going to be driving or out in public, chances are i'll just settle for a soda.

I definitely like evening brewing. That said, I like 0600 start times as well. And there is no guilt starting at noon!

I brew whenever I can fit it into our hectic lives. Careers, commutes, kids, house etc makes for scarce time so I am not tied to any prefers time. The best time for me is when I start!

Nighttime brewing seems to be my MO as well. I usually start heating the strike water around 7 and mash in at 8 or later. With life and all that goes along with it I find this is the best time to brew.

I love brewing after work. Get water and grains milled the night before, come home and heat water up and mash in. If I get started by 4:30 or 5pm, I'm usually done and cleaned up by 9:30 or 10. It gives me something to look forward to all day at work. But I'm usually an early Saturday morning brewer - measure out water and mill the grains the night before and get up at 6 or 6:30am and get going. I prefer that to night brewing but brewing after work rocks too.
