Default what went wrong and what will happen?

I missed my initial gravity…target was 1.012 and I hit 1.045ish…maybe .048

Brewing AHS’ vanilla porter mini mash.

Everything by the numbers except I messed up the bittering hops in the boil. Didn’t realize I had not put them in till 50 minutes into the 60 minute boil. Added them ii, got volume back up to 5 gallon and boiled for another 30 minutes (80 minutes total) per AHS’s instructions on the phone.

So I have no idea what to do if anything since it is in the fermenter now. Also no idea what missing that mark the way I did will do if I don’t do anything more.

Any thoughts?

Umm..you likely lost all of the armoma/flavor hop profile, and are you serious when you say your target was 1.102!!!??? Were you making barleywine? If you missed to OG by 60 points then your beer is going to be WAAAYYYYY hoppy for the style you wanted.

I am relatively new to homebrewing, but my best (educated) guess would be that your brew will simply have a lower ABV than intended. It will probably have a less hoppy flavor than intended since you didn't put the hops in for the full boil. It might not be exactly what you wanted but should still be okay!

Bittering hops aren't really for flavor...the majority/all of the delicate aroma and flavor compunds are driven off in the boil. Since he only boiled his bittering hops for 30 minutes, not all were lost, so hopefully the bittering hop was dual hatted for flavor as well or else you will get some unwanted hop flavors.

That's seems like a big miss. The missed hop wouldn't account for it. Can you post the recipe and your notes? At first guess, I would say you forgot to add something else...

Edited....1.102 was a typo

There were only bittering hops in this kit...no flavoring or aroma
