SO my hose is frozen and I programmed my fridge to get my westy 6 clone (thanks csi) down to 65. Put in the snow and ice bath which dropped to 110 then needed to get the kids from inlays. Well four hours later when I returned temp was 100. Am I screwed?
No, it takes a long time to cool wort (or anything else) with static cooling. You're just doing a shortened version of "no chill brewing". Do a search and you'll find that they do it a lot in Australia since water is so expensive there. It's better to chill fast but not required.
Your beer will likely be fine.
