I'm doing a partial mash - trying for a steam lager. My problem is i usually do a 3 gal boil and add ice and 2 chilled gallons at the end to reduce the temp. to 75-80 and pitch. My dilema is one of my gallons of water shattered before i was able to add it to the wort (in the freezer, my wife will soon be my ex b/c of this). This was suppose to be 5.5 gal but will now be 4.5 gal. Can i pitch the yeast and add an additional 1 gal when moving it to the secondary to fix this f***up? I havent checked the OG b/c of the current temp (100 f).
6.6 light lme
6oz 10 crystal
60z 10 briess 6 row
1 oz cascade
1 oz fuggle
1 w tab, 1 tsp irish, 2 tsb yeast nutrient
pitch now or wait to add 1 gal. additional water when the stores open in 8 hours? My city water is nasty.
