Yeah. Took significantly longer than it should have. I snuck a 45 minute nap during the second half of the boil, finally got to bed around 6am. Work called around 8 and said I didn't need to be there until lunch, thank goodness.

Hit target gravity, and at 9am when I checked it was bubbling happily.

For sure the stupidest thing I've done in a long long time. Oh well, there will be memories for this one, for sure.

You took a nap during your boil? I would be too paranoid about something happening while the wort was boiling.I don't think I could fall asleep.

Lol, allow me to rephrase. Grain crushing to clean up was 9 hours.
