All went well! It is 6.5 hours since the start of the brew. I've mashed, sparged, boiled, cooled, pitched, and went out for Mexican food. I undershot my mash temp and had to add 2 quarts of boiling water, which wasn't a big deal. But my increased boil volume worked out ok because I had just guessed at my boil off rate. It all evened out. Actually got a higher OG than I expected. Was shooting for 1.061 and measured 1.068. The hydrometer samples taste great. I'm so exited for this beer to finish up!
Even better than all of this, my wife said at the end of the day "Why don't you just leave these pots and things. I'll clean them up while you're at work tomorrow." I love this woman!
