Default Fly sparge too long?

Well, while brewing my AG cream ale, my fly sparging that was suppose to take 10 min. Actually took 30 min. How is this going to effect my brew

it'll probably be a little stronger, as you extracted more sugar from it. congrats

The only downside that I know of to a slower fly sparge is that it takes more time. If anything, you may get a little bit better efficiency with the slower sparge.

As you can tell I'm new to brewing and just want to know what to expect. Thinner beer perhaps ?

yes, it would get stronger and thicker. it would get better, not worse. keep up that slower sparge, and you'll get better beer from it

No. Probably thicker if anything. If you are fky sparging, it should take longer than 10min in my opinion.

by thinner do you mean watered down? if so then no because you are using the same amount of water just rinsing the grain slower
