I was without my brew software today and my guess on water amount caused me to collect too much wort. I boiled for an hour before adding hops. After an hour, I started my 60 min. hop schedule. I use a hop bag. At the end of the 2nd 60 min boil, I still had around 3/4 Gallon too much wort. So I removed the hops and boiled an additional 20 minutes. I then added the hops back into the wort (I sterilized a container and placed the hops inside and put on a lid) and boiled for an additional 5 minutes.
Has anyone done something similar? And how did it affect your beer?
After the additional boil time, I hit my numbers perfectly. I guess I’m just curious how the hop flavor and aroma will be affected. Thoughts?
