Sugar Added to Wort, bad idea or really bad idea?
I made a beer that had this in it:
6lb Gold LME
2lb Light DME
Specialty Grains (8oz Carapils, 8oz Carmel 40L)
1oz Chinook pellets, 2oz Amarillo pellets
5 Simcoe Hop Plugs
So I was filling up a 6.5gallon carboy, and I guess I poured too much water in so the SG was at 1.050.
Do you think I totally screwed up the beer by adding around 2lbs of granulated sugar to move it up to 1.061?
