I made NB Bavarian Hefeweizen extract kit tonight for the first time and I was struggling. I added the DME with 15 minutes to go and it clumped up a lot. Even as I was cooling the wort the saw clumps so gave it a few stirs. It kicked up all of the sludge on the bottom of the pot and I ended up adding it all to the carboy not realizing this until I got to dumping the bottom of the pot. Now that all of this is settling and sitting on the bottom, should I move it to a secondary sooner than later? Will it alter the flavor to much?
The OG ended up being 1.054, the instructions say 1.049. Would the sludge suspended in the wort add to the gravity?
