Its about 6:45 here on the east coast. Mashed in about 20 min ago in the cool morning autumn air. Wife and kid still fast asleep and things are so quiet and peaceful. I might have to make early morning brews my new routine!

I work 14-16 hour days/nights in the oilfields here, I love working nights because it is so peaceful when I get home. It's quiet, I can hear birds; I usually have a couple beers and get on HBT or just lounge around the quiet house.

What ya brewing?

A nice American amber I've been working on. Really pumped about it. I recently got hooked on the English Crystal malts, and they've really taken my recipe to a whole other level. Are you brewing today? Cheers!

Brewing an Old Ale this morning. I am calling it "I never met a malt I didn't like."

Ha! Love that name. After that long day of work you put in, I'd say you earned a nice brew session. Enjoy!

Yeah I worked last night. On the up side, I work 14 days on, then I get 7 off. So I try to brew like crazy on those 7 days.

I've been hooked on English Choc malt for a bit, am planning a Moose Drool clone on my off days.

I am definitely more happy doing early morning brews. I'm normally done before lunch and can have the rest of the day to do whatever is on the agenda. Hose water temps are lower in the morning which is important in summer brewing.

I love the early morning brews too. Start the mash while it's still dark and watch the sun come up, hot coffee during the rest of the process, and all done and cleaned up by 10:00 a.m.
