It might not be a bad idea to use a tub of water to drop the temp quicker instead of ambient air.

I mean, has dry hopping ever made a beer worse?
Damn the style guidelines, full steam ahead!
The end result? I learned how much I enjoy mashing. It's my favorite part of brewing, and I ended up sick of extract fast. IMO, better a rare brew day that you really enjoy than having lots of beer via extract brewing.
You don't brew a stew or a soup, you brew a tea or you brew coffee. Brewing, in my mind, is technically the act of mashing and rinsing the grains.
We could argue about this endlessly (and I think we have). I think the fermentation side is part of brewing and there's a whole lot going on there.
Tea and coffee are pretty damn easy to make. Even good tea and coffee. Beer, extract or all-grain, takes more effort.
