Default Campden once mash is set?

Been lurking for a while but love this board so here I am.

I just mashed in for a 10 gallon batch of APA. I stirred until the temp stabilized at 153 and then it dawned on me that I never treated for chlorine.

I crushed up a campen tablet and stirred into the mash. Any ideas as to whether this will work out or not. It was about 5 minutes between when I mashed in and added the tablet. I would hate to finish out the brew if I'm screwed.

Thanks.

You may be OK, but generally once the mash process has begun the chlorophenols have been formed. Good luck

Thanks. Thats kinda what I was thinking.

Is there a tell tale smell associated with chlorophenols at the mash stage? I just smells like mashy deliciousness right now.

I guess we'll see.

Again, thanks.

Nothing I'm aware of that early. Let it go and hope for the best!

I shall indeed. Thanks again. I will report back with the final results.

It's just a bit of a bummer 'cuz Im using the last of my hops....but I am optimistic this will turn out OK.

Well, it's kegged and carbed and tapped. I'm not tasting any off flavors so I guess it's ok. There are quite a bit of hops so if there is anything going on it may be covered up.

I would be more concerned if it were a cream ale or something light.
