So I wasn't paying attention and when calculating my water additions I had set up a 90min boil instead of a 60. Because of that by the end of the boil I still had close to .75gal more than my target. So, instead of giving up, I cranked up the fire and boiled it to death for another 20min to knock down some volume. Shouldn't have? probably, but ya know, woulda, coulda, shoulda.
I should probably say that I hop in a paint strainer bag, so before I fired up the boil the second time, I removed the hops.
This is an all columbus IPA with about 4.5oz of hops into the boil (3.5oz at 10min or less).
Just interested to see what people think will happen with this beer. Did I boil off all of the aromatics? Is it going to cause it to be ridiculously bitter?
(This isn't a RDWHAHB freak out post, what's done is done, just curious on your thoughts, it's not like I WON'T drink the beer lol)
so, any ideas on what the extended boil would have done?
