I was planning to brew up an ESB tomorrow and made a slight error when buying the grains yesterday and wanted some advice on how to fix the problem (if there actually is one.)
My original grain bill was:
10 # Munton’s Marris Otter
.5 # Munton’s Crystal (60 L I believe)
2 0unces Fuggle at 60 minutes
1 Ounce Fuggles at 5 minutes
London ESB - Wyeast 1968
As I was in a hurry and trying to speak on phone at the same time, I cut open the Crystal bag and added the whole pound and crushed it with the Marris Otter. Now I have:
10 # Marris Otter at 90.1 %
1 LB Crystal 60 at 9.9 %
Is that too much crystal at 10% of the grist?
I can use a rolling pin and try to add 1 lb of Marris Otter that I have lying around or maybe mash a little lower to dry it out?
or I can leave it alone and see what happens. Maybe that is not too much crystal afterall.
What does everyone think? Any thoughts would be appreciated.
