I'm making a hefeweizen.
5 lbs German wheat
4 lbs 2-row German pilsner
1 lb flaked wheat
Had a great mash, hit temp dead on...double batch sparged and collected perfect amount of wort. Shaping up to be a great brew day...but just before the boil started I open up the bag from the fridge to get my hops and find a 1lb bag of flaked wheat. I FORGOT TO PUT IT IN THE MASH #%@$!&!
I always put my yeast and hops in the same bag in the fridge, but for some reason when I got home last night and put them in the fridge I left the flaked wheat in the same bag and forgot about them.
Brewtarget software tells me my OG should still be 1.046 at 70% eff, even without the flaked wheat, so I think it will still be OK, just a little lower on the ABV than I wanted. My hydrometer broke, and I haven't gotten a new one yet, so unfortunately I have no way to know what my OG really is.
Other than ABV, anybody expect any other issues with the finished beer. Thinner body or head retention maybe?
I've gotten over the urge to hang myself and I still expect the beer to be good, but just wanted other folks' input/reassurance.
