I was just wondering, as I rolled out of bed this morning and put the heat to my strike water at 4:30 am, if anyone else was a morning brewer. I used to stay up late after the kids were asleep to brew, and found that as the night rolled into morning, and if nothing went wrong I would not get to bed until about 3 or 4. I would start out clear headed, but as the brew session progressed, my ability to think clearly would diminish. Consuming some adult beverages from my fine and extensive cellar didn't help either. Now on brew day, I rise well before the sun, and I am usually completed and cleaned up by 10am. This would include transfer to a keg, All grain brew session, washing of the previous yeast for the next batch, and clean up. I start out groggy, but as the day goes on my mind becomes sharper. Drinking coffee this time. The house is quiet, and I am finishing up, and for the most part out of the way, by the time the rest of the household gets to moving around. I just enjoy brewing this way much more. Any one else?
