First of all very good site lots of great info!! I appreciate the membership and and any help you can offer.
I'm new to this game and think i made a bit of a mistake. I tried to search the forum to get help to avoid overposting, but didn't find any results.
I made a golden palisade IPA kit from austin homebrew supply. Everything went fine, I seeped the grain bag added the hops at the proper time and cooled it quickly (put the pot in the creek behind my house, actually worked really well), then added the yeast.
Long story short, I followed all the directions but it didn't say in the directions to take the hops out of the wort before it went in the primary. I've been doing some reading and think that I should have taken them out. I left them in for like 2 weeks and most of it settled out, there's like a 3 inch green pile in the bottom of the carboy.
Please help me out, did I mess up? where do I go from here? dump it or bottle it?
The hops are palisade and yakima golding if that makes any difference
