Yesterday I brewed NB’s Surly Bender. Everything was going great. Added the ½ oz Willamette at FWH and ½ oz Columbus at 60 minutes. At 10 minutes added Whirlfloc & yeast nutrient and dropped in the immersion chiller. At flame-out shut off the burner and turned on the garden hose until the wort was down to 70 F. Then I went inside to grab my bucket and strainer when I saw 2.5 oz of Willamette hops sitting on the kitchen table! DOH! That’s 70% of the total hops and they were supposed to go in at flame-out! After uttering a few expletives, I thought about what I should do. Should I take the time to fire up the burner and re-heat and re-cool the wort? What impact would that have on the flavor? Should I just go with what I got and live with a minimally hopped brown ale (it certainly wouldn't be a Surly Bender)? Maybe because I hadn't fully recovered from spending the previous day up in a hot attic installing a ceiling fan but, I decided to go what I had and finish up the brew day. Then last night I started thinking that maybe I should have fired up the burner and added the remaining hops after all.
I’m curious what you qualified brewers would have done?
