I almost did that twice myself. Maybe nuke the LME for a couple minutes,then add it when it cools a little bit to the FV & stir gently.

I wouldn't add it now. It may be difficult to get it to dissolve and usually your adding it to a hot wort. Was there any other extract added? Maybe post your recipe.

Don't worry, just add it to a pot with a bit of water and boil it for 10 minutes to sanitize, then cool it covered to room temperature. Dump it in the carboy.

I think you can add it now if you boil it first and cool it to your fermentor temp, but it'll change the beer for sure. Never had this happen, so it may be a bad idea, but people add fermentables during fermentation and it works. Good luck.

Since it was supposed to be in there to start with,it'll only change it to what it was intended to be. Or a reasonable faximily thereof.

We need to know the ingredients list of what DID make it into the fermenter. If the LME/DME was your primary fermentable then you don't really want to go on without it, otherwise if this was a partial mash, you're just going to have a lower gravity beer...

Probably the best solution, but (see below)

I`m brewing Belgian Dubbel which was Irish Moss, bittering hops, flavor hops, cane sugar Breiss Organics caramal and 1/4 lb of extra special malt. Forgot the 7.5 lbs of liquid malt extract.
thanks everyone

I mean, it's definitely worth a shot. You won't end up with much of a beer without at least trying to add it. I would boil it, cool it, and add it to the fermenter asap.
