Hi All, 1st post long time follower. I am in the middle of a boil and just realized the Flavoring Hops from a Austin Home brew kit (Boston Lager) were only .55oz and were supposed to be packaged as 1oz (recipe calls for 3/4 oz). What can I do:
1) should I boil flavoring Hops longer?
2) Am I ok because I am boiling 4 gallons and utilization will be better?
3) Should I substitute some of the bittering Hops which are also supposed to be used for aroma and sacrifice aroma some?
4) I have some Saaz left over can I mix with the tettnager to make 3/4oz?
I"ve usually had good luck with their kits but I'm very dissapointed in this one. I'm also going to come up short for Dry Hopping as I'm supposed to use the same hops for 1/4 dry hop. Here is the Hop schedule:
Tettnager 1 and 1/2 oz 60min
Halletauer 3/4 oz (they pkg. only .55)
Tettnager 1/4 oz Dry Hop
Any help would be greatly appreciated, I have about 35 mins to figure it out.
