Damn! I was expecting a good disaster story. My last 2 batches I missed my hop addition by a good 15 minutes on each due to my damn timer app crashing. They're in the bottle carbing now. I expect them to be fine. I just recently learned that damn near every homebrewer in Australia does no-chill beer where they just cellar the damn thing until it's cool enough. They say it works just fine.

The only thing in your brew day that would have me even a tiny bit worried is squeezing the hop gunk with your hands. Sounds like a risk of infection but still pretty minimal risk.

That said, if you're still concerned I'm happy to drink your beer for you so you don't have to suffer through it.

For that matter, if you need me to keep your girlfriend out of your hair on your next brew day...

Beer really wants to be made. You messing up on that wee scale isn't going to get in it's way.

I am no longer allowed to consume home brew while brewing.

Burnt fingers
Spills
Giant boil over
Having to dry hop because i uhm forgot to add hops.

The list is long...

O always use 5 gallon paint strainers to filter wort out of my BK. I don't pour the wort through them, I pour the wort over them. Short version: take the paint strainers and stack them one on another, and pour wort over them. Well over 80% of the trub gets caught this way, and a whole lot less beer lost to the BK goblins.Honestly, I lose maybe 1/4 cup during racking.

The moral of the story is here that if you stick with this hobby, you're eventually going to make some much bigger mistakes. When's next brew day?

On a scale of 1-10, where 10 is setting your block on fire and 1 is adding a hop addition 1 minute late, you scored a 1.6

Missing a hop addition by a minute is negligible to the overall beer. That's why most recipe's call for additions that end in 0 or 5, such as a 30 minute addition or a 15 minute addition. I never seen a recipe call for a 24 minute addition because a few minutes here or there means very little. The utilization of a couple of minutes is not really going to be detected by the drinker.

Next time tell your girl she gave 2 minutes, no big deal
