Yes, I was recirculating. Granted it was a 5g batch of a low ABV beer in a full keggle so thermal mass wasn't high (7-8# of grain total) and ambient temp was near freezing.

i'd say at least 24 hrs, else he may have killed off his yeast - it wasn't clear (at least to this sod) if it was added in sequence or all at once from his original message.
