I made the wort by mashing 1lb of base malt. I thought the syrup might not be fermentable because the sugar was caramelized by boiling.

I boiled 2qts of unhopped wort down to ~ 8oz of caramelized brown malt syrup to use in an upcoming brew. Will this sugar be fermentable?

While draining my brewpot into my fermenter last batch, I realized that I never added any hops to the brew. None. I think I fixed it tho. We'll see.

The water is completely unecessary unless you just like to watch the bubbles. They work fine dry and you don't have to worry about suckback either.
