OG affect on IBU's

I overshot my OG today because I boiled off more than I anticipated. Will this affect the IBU's in the finished beer? I was shooting for 1.056 and ended up with 1.062.

Thanks,
Zach

The package date was a month ago. I think I'm going to run to the store and get another smack pack. That should give me enough.

I'm sorry I meant I added 173F to the mash, it would have been around 168F in the actually mash tun.

I batch sparged and the PH was 5.5

Stout drying out mouth.

Has anyone had experience with a stout drying their mouth out? It's not a dry stout. It finished at 1.022 but leaves you with cottonmouth in the aftertaste?

Thanks,

Stuck mash, Hot side aeration?

I had a stuck mash tonight and had to blow into the hose of the mash tun a bunch of times to get it flowing again. Should I worry about hot side aeration?

Thanks,

1.045 OG Starter or pitch from vial?

I'm in a situation and I can either make a starter and pitch it in 6 hours or just pitch the vial. The OG will be 1.045. Is it worth doing a small starter or not?

Thanks,
Zach

I bottled this one week ago. I tried one today and the carbonation is good but it tastes a little yeasty/young. I'm assuming that it will taste better in a couple weeks?

So I add the calcium chloride to the strike water? Do I need to add it to the sparge water?

Also doesn't calcium chloride lower the PH? Why do I need to lower it further with the acidulated malt?...
