Default Ack!!! Need boiling advice right now!!

Hi guys, I'm just finishing the "sparging" of my porter right now. It's going great, except work just called to remind me of a meeting I totally forgot about!!! It's 5:42 right now and the meeting is at 6:30.

Is it possible to finish sparging, put a lid on the pot and leave it for an hour before beginning the boil? It'll be a short meeting. Nothing bad will happen, right? RIGHT?

I would cover it up and finish after the meeting. During the summer it has taken me that long to cool the wort.

Right! I'd try to bring it up to a boil now, just to kill any lacto bugs that were on the grain, and then shut it off with the lid on it and resume after the meeting.

Once the grains are out, I don't think it matter much if it sits around for a while. An hour definately shouldn't hurt.

Thanks guys! I'll boil it now to sterilise it, and then turn it off and cover it and boil it again.

I guess "extracts" are boiled twice, once when they are made and then again when you make the beer, so this should be fine. Thanks for the reassurance!!
