Many great points made here, I just want to add that you certainly did not overestimate your ability, you just need to nail down your process. You sir, are certainly capable! Keep at it, all grain is a great journey. Lots and lots of us to help along the way.

What? I've never heard this before, can you cite a source?
The book "Yeast," by Chris White and Jamil Zainasheff.

Call it an O'Douls clone and give it to your designated drivers

There's also this thread dedicated to yeast hydration.

I'd let this batch ride and see where it goes. Might work out fine as a low ABV, never know without trying.

Very interesting. Thanks. I've been using wort to rehydrate dry yeast, I'll make a mental note to not do that anymore and use water instead!
