Default Hop Bursting Woe?

Tried this method today and everything was going well till I noticed my thermometer was set to F instead of C.. So I Hop bursted! at 26c... Ruined batch?

No, maybe just some under-utilized hop flavor/aroma utilization. No worries.

Ruined, I don't think so. I doubt you'll be isomerizing anything at 26c, probably a miniscule difference.

so were all the hops added at this point? it's not ruined per say, but you'll have less flavor/aroma and no bitterness which could make this overly sweet. you can make a hop tea to get some back if this is the case

Hey, no, I added the first hop addition at 60mins and the rest at that dreaded temp. So instead of yielding an IBU of in and around 52 I got 45 which should be ok I guess?

So, you need a thermometer to tell you your wort is boiling?
