Default REALLY messed up, opinions quick

I am 10 minutes into my mash. While mashing in on a 15 gallon batch I realized I accidentally put one tablespoon on PBW in my mash instead of ph5.2. Should I just scrap the mash? My mash is roughly 12 gallons of water if that helps?

Ouch. I would probably say scrap it, as painful as that sounds.

I think I'm leaning that way to. Seeing that it says "harmful if swallowed" on the label. DAMNIT!

Yep, that's usually a deal breaker.

Also, I've seen enough posts where people complain about chemical tastes in their beer when they forget to rinse out their PBW-treated carboys... I would think that a direct addition would completely ruin the beer (setting aside the poison factor).

Really sorry, man. At least you are still in the mash phase, and haven't put EVERYTHING in yet.

I've been brewing for over 5 years and this is my first mess up. Guess it has to happen to all of us sooner or later. Oh well, lesson learned, $30 in grain down the drain, but at least I won't waste my hops, yeast starter, etc.

Yeah, don't use it.

But holy crap, how did you manage that? You doing some day-drinking?

Psh, if this is mistake #1 for you, you are WAAAAAY ahead of the curve.

Perfect attitude about not wasting everything else.

No drinking involved ... but there will be some now! That's the way homebrewing goes I guess.

Stupid containers look the same. Plus I was adjusting my new mills gap, got caught up in the chaos.

And I thought I screwed up this morning pitching 05 yeast instead of Saflager.
