It was a full boil.  I may have to get a more efficient chilling process if I want to get it down to 68 or below.  I use a homemade immersion chiller and ice bath in a big wash tub.  I can chill to 70-75 range in about 20 minutes.

repo:
You were not going to hit 1.086, with that recipe. You would be lucky to get 75% mash efficiency at this point in time. You told beersmith you would get 75% brewhouse efficiency, this is a quite an aggressive expectation this early in your brewing. I think 1.071 was about what to expect.

you have a controled temp fermentation chamber? just pop the wort in there over night after getting it down to 75ish with the temp control set to 62-64, in the morning it will be just right. aerate and pitch then.

I agree with the pitching temp as well.  If you can get to 70-75 in 20 minutes, I would think you can get to 65F in 30 minutes?
