Default Day 1 Mash - Day 2 Boil?

I am confident this has been asked/discussed before. I have some grains that I prepared for mashing two days ago and I was planning on mashing them tonight after work, then doing the boil tomorrow after work. I figured since I am boiling everything tomorrow, there should be no problem. Anyone use this technique?

You might get a lot of Lactic Acid Bacteria. The next day after I brew I clean, and sometimes my mash smells like LAB.

I would think it would still be a flavor element.

That's not bad at all, it's usually more like six by the time I get everything cleaned and stow away. Assuming I don't just leave it out for "next time."

Oh yea, if you leave the mash overnight it'll turn sour because of the lactobaccilus that lives on grain husks. I once left the grains in the mashtun overnight because I was lazy and the next morning.... the horror....

Yep, I have been there and smelled that vomitous mixture of spent grain and dead body effervescing when I remove the lid of my mash tun the next day, lol. Might be good technique for a Berliner Weisse though.
