Sounds like you need to get him a no-boil kit. I remember my kids used to want to do everything I was doing... Now they just want to borrow the car (sigh)

I do this and have had fine results so far. I've only done it with my last two batches though. I sparged and then let it cool overnight. The beer is not carbed up yet, but it tasted just fine at the month mark. No hints of sourness yet. I let the more recent one sit for a couple days because things get in the way going to school, teaching, and being a stay at home dad for a one year old. So, we shall see. I'll let you know how it turns out. In fact, its been two weeks so I think I'll go pull a grav sample and report back.

what I try to do is have all of my wort ready on the stove prior to bedtime. you could even mash in before dinner if you don't have any issues with large stock pot on stove heating up mash water while dinner is getting ready. perhaps treat SWMBO to carry out when this happens as that way you'll be sure to get many more brew dates :-)

do all your sparging after dinner collecting all the wort & put on stove.

I then keep it at medium heat while putting kids to bed. when I get out I turn it up to full blast.

the time tabloe works well & I don't have to avoid putting my kids to bed andmaking SWMBO do it. nothing like having boiling wort at 9pm, cleaned up by 11-11:30 :-)
