    Mashed in too low

    G'day guy I'm brewing a Janet's brown at the moment but I mashed in too low. I think because the grain bill was fairly large it dropped my temp more then I planed. I was aiming for 66* but I'm stable at 64.5* after 30 mins. Should I increase the length of my mash or just leave it? Cheers
