So I f***ed up. Big time.
17 days ago, I brewed a batch of an Imperial IPA that I concocted the recipe for. I still have some crystal at home of which I was supposed to add 1.5lbs of it along with the 14 lbs of base malt I bought at the store.
Well, I just went to the fermenter to take out a sample and said to myself
"self, this looks really really light in color"
I took a sip and it has a vodka burn to it.
The fermentation took it down from about 1.088 to 1.009
Needless to say it's strong.
But there's only a 1/2 lb of non base malt in it from the stuff I added at the store.
Is there any way to save this? Can I make a tea of crystal malt and add it to tame it down or something. I'm assuming not.
Right now, it's sort of like a Imperial SMaSh recipe.
Except with 6 oz of assorted hops so ... actually it's not at all like that.
Oh the panic *_*
