Gordon Strong's book talks about doing an overnight mash in an oven to maintain appropriate mashing temps...

Well... there won't be alcool. There's no starch conversion at this temp, even if you let it soak for a week.

You'll get some conversion, but the grains will go fetid first. Barley malt is sick with lacto.

Myself and a few others do this quite a bit, and there's a good bit of gathered info on doing just that.

Read through this link: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f36/over...y-cool-295579/

I have made some wonderful brews using this technique, I suggest you give it a try!

Edit: I'm assuming that you start your mash at a conversion temp, then let the mash sit overnight. Or do you mean just literally dough in at room temp? If the latter is the case, I agree with the previous posters, you probably wont get any conversion.

Good info. Sounds like a good way to break up brew day. Does it add any flavor change to the beer?
