I have run into a speed bump during my brew day requiring me to leave the house for about half a day.

Is it okay to extract the sweet wort after mashing and wait to begin the boil?

I should be able to get back to my wort in about 7 or 8 hours.

Yeah, youíll be fine. Itís not ideal, but the boiling process will even everything out.

Make sure you do a hot mash out, denaturing the enzymes, otherwise, as the wort chills back into the saccharification rest temperature, the enzymes will continue to work, making an extremely fermentable wort.

Unfortunately my mash tun is a cooler so I am unable to raise the temperature via direct fire as with a kettle style mash tun.

I did a batch sparge at 170F. Will this be sufficient to ensure I donít have too much enzyme activity while I am away?

Hard to tell. Ideally, youíd want to hit 170, which would require a sparge temp above 170, but it will certainly be better than not.

Yes watch out for the saccharification temp, thoses enzymes will become activey creating a very fermetable mixture, Failure to comply may result in a sour sweet malt Licka!
