I started my mash around 7:00 p.m., was a little light on my target temp at around 150F. Was around 130F (or so) 9:00 a.m. the next morning. Wort smelled fine, the spent grains smelled a bit sour so we'll see.

My grains had a bit of something different than normal as well, maybe a bit sour? I think you wil be fine

Stauffbier, good idea with the saran wrap! I'll give that a try next time for sure!

I've done this twice (RIS and IPA) and the results were very good. No sourness noted, however my RIS was a little thin in body but that may be due to my initial mash temp, 154. I overnight mash in a Coleman Xtreme cooler. For my next brew I'm planning on mashing in at around 158 to hopefully get a little more body.

My interest has been peaked. I'm going to have to give this a whirl. Thank you for the idea.

Hackwood, give it a shot! I'm beginning to love this method. It really opens up more brew days for me, since i can split it up and it's very difficult for me to be able to nail down 8+ hrs to brew. Overnight mashing is great for anyone who finds themself in a restricted schedule. Great beer can still be crafted despite the traditional methods. So much is said about LETTING the beer work for you, but not too often can we HELP the beer work with us.

On a side note, after several batches, I have yet to brew a sour batch.

Niiiiiiiice! I'll probably employ this technique one of these times when I'm "on-call" and don't know If I'll have time or not.

When I overnight mash, I wrap my MT in an old sleeping bag. Helps to keep the temp up.

Excellent thread--this is definitely something I'm going to look into. With this, every weekend could be a brew weekend, regardless of whether we're busy on Saturday or not!
