So I make the PM version of a Dog Fish head imperial stout from "Extreme Brewing". I got what I thought was all the ingredients from my LHBS in one box, but misplaced the recipe. So I get in the mood to brew and I don't have my recipe, and decide to go ahead anyway, using what knowledge I have about the individual characteristics of hops to make a good guess at what and how much to put in at certain points in the boil. I did make a mistake that I fear will spell disaster, however, and forgot to boil 3/4 pound turbinado. The target ABV is 10.7%, and I fear I won't reach anywhere near this without the sugar, or that the flavor will be much too dry, etc.
I have a few inches in the top of my carboy. Can I make a simple syrup and dump it in? (it has been about 48 hours, and the head is just about to start finding its way into the blow-off tube rigged up.
Is it too late to salvage? should I not worry?
