This happened to me once. The starsan that was sucked back into my carboy kind of lingered on top, which was a good thing because I was able to rack the beer under it using an auto-siphon to my keg....

I bottle too, just treat it like any other beer. 2-3 weeks at 70 degrees to carb, then refrigerate for a week or two to chill/clarify.

I was thinking I could continue the boil to raise the OG but I had completed my hop schedule already and thought that would make the beer too bitter and lose hop flavor/aroma.

I have tested my...

I've heard that you don't want to shred the husks because that will cause tannins and make the beer taste astringent. A good crush would break open the husks and leave them in tact, not shredded. ...

I wonder if the hops were old. Did you smell them? If your beer tastes cheesy they are old. How were they stored?

Just a thought, maybe you could leave a 1/2 - 1 gallon out of the mash for sparging. That way you have more room in the pot for all the grain, but end up doing a full boil after the sparge.
