Just setting up for tonights overnight brew. Weighed up the grain and like a moron dumped it straight in the malt pipe. water at 14 degrees C. Will this make a major impact ? cant believe I did it.

I do not think so. I mash in at 35* but my water comes out at 29* so I recirculate to mix my salts and then mash in and walk away.
Good luck... :beer:

Nope. I have just done a cool overnight.
The grain stood in 20c water for 6 hours, before starting.

So you start the brew with a 6 hour 20c "rest" then raise the temp. to 67c, or whatever, for next rest and continue as usual?

No problems to report. Got 98% efficiency on the overnight brew. A tad darker on the srm scale about 9.5 instead of 6.7 will keep you informed.

I like the cold overnight method, did it for the first time recently. MAGIC! Just the pump running, and nothing getting too hot to get into trouble for too long.

The pilsner is bubbling quite steadily at 12 degrees C. Nice aromas in the brew chamber.
