Fermentation should take about the same time. The potential problems are:
- It will take longer to start, allowing more time for any other contaminants to spoil the wort before the yeast starts.
- You can get more fusel alcohols and other flavors from the yeast due to it being stressed.
- It may not attenuate completely.
Please note, these are only potential problems. You may not notice anything wrong.
