Has anyone ever separated their brew day? I did this the last time I brewed, and as I drink while typing, I am not noticing anything off about my AM Ape, a breakfast stout.
Further description of the day; When my daughter went down for her nap I got started. She slept just long enough for me to get the wort flowing from the mash. I kept check on that after she woke up, and when it was done, I covered the kettle. It then sat while we played, ate dinner, gave her a bath and put her down for the night. After that I began the boil, and finished off as I normally would. The biggest difference was the time I finished at which was about 11pm instead of the usual 2am. I like that very much.
It has me wondering if I might separate the process even more. For example, mashing Friday evening and boiling sometime Saturday or Sunday. What do y'all think?
