Default Ill effects of FWH??

I had to split my brewday due to being called into work. I collected my wort and added my hops for the FWH when I got the call to come in. Now I have the wort sitting in a carboy waiting for the boil. Everything was sanitary. so no infection worries, but will leaving my hops in there for too long provide an ill effects or will it essentially be a dry hop? The beer is an IIPA, OG Preboil was 1.048 for 7 gallons and I am adding 3 lbs of Light DME for a late addition. Hops were Whole leaf Amarillo 9.5%

I've left my wort for 6 hours before starting the boil with no problems. The FWH is more like a flavor addition, so you should be really happy with the amarillo for the IIPA. Just don't let it hang around very long at a temp too low before starting the boil. My rule is: mash/sparge/collect in the afternoon, have dinner with the fam, kids go to bed, start the boil. Success every time.

Start the boil as soon as your shift is over and you will be fine! I have read that leaving it overnight f**ks it up, but have never done so I don't know.

Its not the hops you need to be worried about, it's lactobacillus and other bacteria that could give you a sour wort, though that takes a few days. Did you at least boil after collecting?

I didn't boil after collecting I just didn't have time. When the general needs someone and I get called it's a bad day all around. The wort is currently sitting in a temp controled room in a clean sanitized carboy with the plug in and airlock on. Completely sealed. I used some campden on this one so I am not too worried about it. I just don't know if the hops are really going to screw with it if I have to leave it for more than 24 hours.

It shouldnt really affect it. Id be more worried about not boiling it really.

FWH takes advantag of the time the wort is sitting at about 150F and the hops get to stew in there. This is when the magic happens. I dont think you will have a problem with it, but this is definately not an ideal situation.

How hot was this stuff when it went to the carboy? Glass?

As long as you boil it before a week is up you should get some serious hop utilization of your FWHs that should come out tasting very nice!

As mentioned, the bigger issue is all that lactobacillus in the wort. Even though everything was clean...it's in there.

And FWIW, my default line when I accidentally answer the phone and it's the boss wanting me to come in; "Sorry sir, I've had a couple of beers."

FWH is like a flavor addition? In the specific terms of flavor no. I guess some software treats the utlization as such if that is what you are referring to. It is "supposed" to provide smoother bittering, whatever that means. Of course I can only suppose, since I have tried it both ways and well it did nothing that I noticed. The science around it, to me anyway, isn't really sound- lots of observations.

Corboy/bottleing bucket in this event they are one in the same. The wort was about 130 when I took the hydro sample. I went to start the boil today and lo and behold I'm out of propane Crap!! Spanish, as much as I would love to use that excuse when you are supposed to be on call and not drinking and the J2 calls you directly on you cell telling you to get in...saying I have had a few beers is not in the best interest of your career. Esspecially when you are trying to get him to recommend you for warrant officer.

Ah...didn't know you were 'on call'...that's different. Please report back after you taste the final product...I'd be interested if you can taste the extended FWH.
