I'm brewing this one on Sunday. I had a few substitutions while at the LHBS and I'm wondering if there will be detrimental ramifications.
Instead of 4 pounds DME, I got 5 pounds LME. The LHBS said this was the correct conversion. Were they correct? And then for the half pound black malt, I got black patent. Is this what the recipe was calling for? And then, instead of pellet hops I bought whole leaf. Just because I've never used whole leaf before.
And then... I'm kidding. That's all.
The one thing that concerns me the most is the amount of LME. I hope its correct because I'd hate to have to drive back over to the LHBS. Is it some unwritten rule that they have to be a minimum 30 minutes away?
