Yesterday I brewed NB’s English Pale Ale extract kit. It was a good brew day except for 2 mistakes.
1. When adding 2nd LME at 15 minutes remaining I also added the final 1 oz of UK Kent Goldings hops. This last hop addition should have been at 1 min remaining.
2. When adding water to the fermenter to reach specified OG of 1.050 I added too much water and wound up with an OG of 1.0473 (temp adjusted).
While I know neither mistake will ruin my beer, I am curious what impact these mistakes will have and if there are any tweaks I could do to modify their impact. I don’t want to make it worse by tinkering. But I don’t want to leave a easy fix on the table either.
