Default Favorite Time Of Day?

When is your favorite time of the day to brew. I'm beginning to really enjoy brewing early on a Saturday morning. By early, I mean up with the sun and mashing by ~7am.

Yeah, same here if I can get up then and get rolling. Usually though, out of necessity it can really vary. Sometimes it is a late Friday night, which isn't too bad either imo.

Brew what you like. Do this, and you will find your inner brewer.

By necessity, I brew in the mornings. If I'm desperate, I'll brew in the evenings after the kids are in bed, but it makes for a late night.

I'm not a morning person, but I do enjoy brewing at about 8 am. I make some coffee, and eat breakfast while steeping my grains. Good times! Very Zen!

I usually start around 9-10 on the weekends although since I took the jump to AG I've been thinking of starting earlier. I just like being able to be finished in time for football/racing/baseball whatever on the weekends.
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool, then to speak and remove all doubt.

"I used to Brew Beer. But I'll tell you something: I would only brew it in the late evening. Oh, occasionally the early evening, but usually the late evening. Or the mid-evening. Just the early evening, mid-evening and late evening. Occasionally, early afternoon, early mid-afternoon, or perhaps the late-mid-afternoon. Oh, sometimes the early-mid-late-early morning ... But never at dusk. Never at dusk!"

-Apologies to Steve Martin

I have brewed at dusk BTW.

I'm definitely a morning brewer. If I finish by 2pm, then I feel like I've gotten so much accomplished that I can just watch TV on the couch or whatever for the rest of the day. Or drink and fall asleep on the couch, that works too.
Nothing until I figure out if I can make it happen over in the UK.

I'm a midday / afternoon guy if I can do it. Sometimes I do evenings, but I try not to make a habit of it.

Definitely first thing in the morning. I love getting it knocked out early; it gives me a real sense of accomplishment for the day. I'm usually done sometime between 10am and noon. Bottling, however, I prefer to do in the evening (early, mid, or late ).
