Title: Don't know how it happend, but I'm glad it did
Post by: RaginCajun929 on July 21, 2015, 08:49:27 PM
So I couldn't sleep last night . Rather than toss and turn I got up and started brewing. I thought I had enough time to do my mash and sparge, followed by my boil. Turns out I didn't and was forced to leave my tun sit for 3.5 hours at 149.F I got back from my doctors appt. and bam not only was I spot on for my temp still but also at my exact starting gravity of 1.046. I thought for sure I'd be starting over when I got back but . I don't know I can't explain it. Any thoughts?

you likely had full potential conversion under an hour, so the extra time is just that...extra time. no harm with longer rest.
