Default 7:50 PM Dough In....

Gonna be a long night, and a horrible 530AM wakeup for work.

Would have been an hour earlier if I didn't have to calibrate my stupid thermometers. I was lazy and never calibrated them when I got them, and finally decided to test them and had 3 different readings. Had to run inside for a 4th thermo that I knew worked to figure it all out. Boil test done, then had to mix room temp water with the too hot water to try and hit my dough-in temp. Mashing at about 1.35 quarts per pound

At least I have my Godiva Brown on tap next to me... Just hope I can see straight enough by the boil to measure the hops...

You could always run the sparge, and save the boil until tomorrow after work. A lotta guys do that...mash the night before, boil the next morning/afternoon.
just do a normal mash out to halt enzymatic conversion and you should be cool.

Otherwise...there could be worse reasons for staying up so late

Hey, who needs sleep? You'll sleep when you're dead. Brew on!

I'm right there with you. I'm doing BIAB so I may finish a little earlier (no sparge), but I'm going to let the aroma hops steep for 30 minutes when the boil is over. And I don't have to get up at 5:30. Brutal man! hah. You should consider drinking a lot tonight to take the edge off the morning. You can trust me.

I'll be brewing tomorrow. Maybe doing some work during the mash and boil. Working from home rocks!

AHahahaha, thanks for the votes of confidence. The thermometer problem is still messing with my brain. I either mashed way too high or perfect. To be safe I'm going another 40 minutes after adding some cooler water to bring it down to the right mash temp on the thermo that I normally use.

Any thoughts on ramping down during mash? Is it possible?

1st hop addition, 955. doing a 75 minute boil. I wish I had an IC or CFC! Will probably put it in an ice bath and pitch in the AM. Getting tired and drunk.

Good news is the IPA I kegged 4 days ago is PHENOMENAL!!!! It's like I'm chewing on wonderful, wonderful hops! Can't wait for it to be fully carbed...

Last hop addition done (shortened to 60 minute boil, amazing what tiredness can make you do). It smells incredible in the garage although it's about 95 degrees in here now. Closed the garage doors to keep the bugs out and have two fans blowing air through the screened windows but it's still INSANELY hot in here. Good thing I have cold beer to cool me off. Unfortunately I almost tripped over an extension cord into the boiling wort as I went to do the last addition. Carrying the hot pot to the house and putting it into the bathtub will be very entertaining....

Good night all!

I don't know, and I don't mean to perpetuate the Kentucky stereotype, but I just dropped 2 oz of hops in for aroma and now Outkast is coming on. I'm going to let them steep for 30 mins then I'll chill.

I'm sorry, Miss Jackson.

I didn't explain that Merle Haggard was on before Outkast. That's why I was defensive about Kentucky. I brewed an Amarillo / Simcoe IPA. 2 packs of Notty to go into it once it cools down sufficiently.

Pandora is weirding me out.
