I am getting ready to mash in, and then leave for at least an hour and a half.
Can there be any negative effects to doing this? I could easily be gone for 2 hours. I'm still new to AG and appreciate any quick responses, as I will be mashing in in about ten minutes, and plan to leave immediately..
Well, I think that you meant "oz" not "lbs"
Did you brew this from the couch on your porch?
