How did this turn out? Did the yeast seem correct?I got caught up brewing four other beers in
preparation for the Door County Homebrew competition coming up in June, but I'm definitely
planning on bre...

It was the whole "eight hour" mash duration that caught my eye, not the temperature thing. I
would expect that long a sac rest to result in a thin beer, unless the grain bill had body
