Hi all. I recently made and extract all chinook IPA from the chinook hops I grow in my garden. As I only had enough speciality grains and malt extract for a 3 gal brew I had to cut the original recipe in half and made a 2.5 gal brew. Is that okay to do? Was it okay to cut the hops used in the brew in half as well? In other words the recipe called for hop addition as follows:
1 oz for 60min, 1/2 oz for 10 min, 1/2 oz for 1 min, and 1 oz dry hop and I added 1/2 oz @60, 1/4 oz @10, and 1/4 oz @1 min. Have I screwed up this brew and wasted good hops?
