So tonight I am going an AHB Bavarian Hefe. I get "everything" out and get started. Wife isn't here to the Maiden is turned up. I steep, I get to a boil I thrown my hops in and after about 30 minutes I notice my wort is really greenish blue.

I then realize I forgot to add the malt like an idiot.

Jesus.

It'll still make beer. Plus, any evening spent with loud Maiden is a pretty good one, right?

I don't think you can weave baskets to Iron Maiden either.

I bet he was getting some great utilization rates from those hops though.

So OP how did the St. Patties Day brew turn out?

If he did...took two days to kick off, and twenty minutes later, DONE!
