Lonnie Mac don't brew at midnight anymore. Lonnie Mac learned that misquotes really like Lonnie Mac after dark!

I made sure to use the 'insert quote' feature so I didn't mosquito you!  :P

I usually brew starting a 5 or 6 in the morning and then take the family out to lunch while all the cleaned equipment is drying in the kitchen.

Yes, it has become a necessity with two children.  Since I brew on the weekends because of work, I don't really feel like telling them daddy has to take 3-5 hours out of the day, and can't take them to the park or go for a bike ride, because his beer is more important.  So, yeah, I wait until they rack out at night.

I'm in the same boat little kids - I've brewed all but one batch after 8 pm on Sunday night.

I'm an extract brewer so I usually get done around midnight - the solitude is nice.

Brewing seems to go well but bottling is a b*tch

I guess I should have added that I am also an extract/partial mash brewer. Saves me some time, but not really. I still spend 3-4 hours per session. I am usually racking and/or bottling in the same time I am brewing. I should be brewing right now, but there  is always tomorrow...
