I used the northernbrewer extract kit, made a few tweaks, but in the end I failed to account for the volume added with the late add of extract.
Basically the recipe is 3 pounds of amber extract with some hops at 60, then 9 pounds and more hops at 15 minutes.
Based on my OG, it looks like I have 1 gallon extra of water in the batch. Normally, I wouldn't mind letting it run it's course, but I'm supposed to let this sit in my secondary for 5 months. ugh...
I was thinking of buying 2.5 lbs amber extract at my LHBS in two days, along with the same hops added at 15 minutes, then boil this up for 15 minutes and add it to the primary.
Will this work? Suggestions?
