Well, started the boil and just realized I never added flaked barley. How bad is that and anything I can do?

There's nothing you can do. You may lose a little mouthfeel but that will be all.

So I've just read all this thread over - thinking of doing a run at it of my own... just a couple things.

First, when I put 26 plato into beersmith my OG turns out being 1.112 - a number I didn't see anyone start at in this thread. I really doubt it matters though, but I'm just curious why no one has tried to brew it to its actual OG.

Also, Isn't regular KtG (which I have never had) brewed without port? Rate Beer makes the distinction:
http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/portsmo...l-stout/51898/
http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/portsmo...l-stout/83320/

...though BA doesn't. Without knowing the actual question asked, the reference to the Todd Mot answer (from a BA review) can read that regular KtG is oaked, and they also do a special oak/port version.

Either way I'm probably going to oak/port half my 6 gallon batch...It just makes me curious though.
