5 or 10 minutes over wont make any difference. Better to be over to give the grains time to convert.

Just start the clock from wherever you are now. If you go over it's no drama for your beer. I mashed for 60min the other day then went to sparge but found I'd forgotten to refill the urn after dumping in the strike water (whats that about no beers til first hop addition? ;)) Had to wait another 30min for the sparge water to heat, ended up being a 90min mash. No probs.

I have heard of people who mash overnight.
Yeah the more i read the more that sounds like a bad idea. iv done it once of twice and nothing went astray, but that was back in the day.
