Default topping up 20mins into boil with 2 cups of second runnings

After i drain the second runnings into my boil kettle, i always set my mash tun to drain into a measuring cup. I figured i would save thw wort for starters or something, although i never wind up using it.

So tonight, im watching my wort boil for 20 mins, and then i look over at the measuring cup and there are 2 cups of wort just sitting there. I figure, hey, thats a beer bottle right there! So i grab it and toss it in. Im always having issues with low yield as i am a stove top brewer (2.5 gal batches), so every drop is gold!

Does anybody think it will be a problem that those 2 cups dont boil for the whole 60mins? Should i boil longer?

You'll be fine. 15 minutes is all you need for sanitization, and 2 cups aren't going to mess up your hop utilization which is why we boil for an hour usually anyway.

Yes, it's still an insignificant amount.
