These types of experiments are great. I always do a full 60 min mash, then a 10-15 batch sparge at 168F. Altogether, it probably takes 75 minutes for the sach rest and vorlauf and lautering, plus the sparge time plus vorlauf and lautering. I am thinking from what I have read in different blogs/forums, I probably do not need to do a full 60 minute mash, maybe I could get away with closer to 45 minutes. Every little bit of times helps to shorten the brewday.
Nice job on your beer! Glad it turned out well! How long do you usually do your mash for?

@th3beerman I typically mash 30 minutes and check gravity to make sure it has converted as expected. This time, I went over an hour as I just let it sit until I could get away from the newborn.

wow, fascinating. The fact that you personally like the beer is what matters most. Cannot wait to see if you try this again. It must have been hard to figure out how much hops to use, considering the 5 minute boil? interesting how bitter it ended up being.
I'm experimenting with 30 m boil/30 min mash: onepotbrewing.wordpress.com
