Default Weizenbock extract

I brewed a batch of Weizenbock on Saturday. The recipe called for 8lbs of wheat extract and i used probably a little more then 9lbs. Does anyone think I'll have any problems?

Thanks

Does more LME mean higher Alcohol content?

Yes, as long as it ferments properly.

No, it means :Liquid Malt Extract"...but I think you really were asking a different question...

Technically, your 9 lbs of LME is more than 9 lbs of DME (Dry). There's a ratio I posted as a chart somewhere on this forum. See if you can locate it or maybe someone else knows where it is.

So, your beer will have a higher alcohol content than 9 lbs of DME, but it will also be sweeter.

Did you compensate for the additional sugar/malt? Probably not. Most people forget to do that too.
You may have to end up dry hopping some. Start reading up on the process now and you'll be ready should you decide to go that route.

Good luck.

Yea, I wrote that wrong. I meant by adding a pound more of extract will that make more alcohol in the beer. Thanks for the answer HB99. I'll look up that chart. And also, no I didn't compensate for the extra extract.

Weisenbock...Mmmnn...

I did the same thing to my Weisenbock, and it turned out really good. I only have about 6 -16oz. left, so I must brew another one up.

Much like a pound of lead weighs more than a pound of feathers.

I may be wrong but I'd just thought I'd throw this out there.
9 lbs LME minus 20% water = 7.2 lbs DME
9 lbs DME = 9 lbs DME

so wouldn't 9 lbs LME be less than 9 lbs DME?

could someone please clear this up?
