Default Time gap between sparging and boiling

Hello HBT, I'm proud to be making my first post on this excellent site.

Im a newby, about to start my 4 th all grain batch tomorrow, a nut brown ale. The question I have is that I will have to split the time due to a family commitment. I am wondering if there is any negative to doing the mash, sparging ect and then just letting the wort sit for an hour of so before boiling it? My logic says no, but my logic is uniformed and inexperienced lol. And advise, should I do it,or wait till another day when I can do it all together?

Thanks all, I've been reading a bunch here and happy to start contributing.

Cheers

I've mashed all day while at work and came home sparged and then boiled with no ill effects.

I know of a couple people that mash at night and brew in the morning after their kids leave for school. Or whenever. You're going to boil away any nasties that try and get in.

Another note...people that have a stuck mash for whatever reason, can be draining their mush tuns for well over an hour from what I have herd/seen.

One thing to note is that enzymatic action continues to occur, which will make your mash more fermentable the longer it sits. If you're brewing a stout, you may not want that.

I guess you need to define what you would consider a negative impact. A longer mash will ensure maximum conversion. You will also go through a range of decreasing temps and that will increase fermentability. For some styles, that might be a big plus. If you are brewing a Mild, that might not be what you are looking for.

Thanks all for the replies,

Maybe I didn't explain correctly, what I was planning on doing is mashing, then sparging, draining everything into the boil kettle and then leave it in there for an hour or two before boiling.

I assume there will be no problem with that based on what has been said in the comments?
