Wort age?
« on: September 30, 2017, 08:42:09 PM »
How long can I leave wort in a sanitized car before I boil it?
This is grain, which any fool can use to make bread.  God, however, intended for it a higher purpose - Beer!

Unrefrigerated, I'd be worried about more than a few hours.  Refrigerated probably overnight.
