Unfortunately it will make a difference, mostly in your flavor/aroma additions. It will be a bit more bitter as well. Make sure you dry hop it which will help.
I was smart enough to wait to put the last on in about 5 minutes before the end. It's in the carboy but could I still throw some pellets in?

Oh, well then you shouldn't be too bad.

Wait until it's about 90 percent done fermentation and then throw some dry hops in.. sure won't hurt.

In terms of set-up I'm using a picnic cooler (about 30 litres) as a mash tun, and covering it with a thick duvet, then using a 21 litre stock pot as a boiler. If my calculations are correct I had 79 percent efficiency yesterday!
I'm thinking the original was for 5.5 gallons but don't know if that would raise it that much??

Oh, cool. I threw in a bit of priming sugar at the end to give it little kick which might thin the taste too. I'll do the dry hop though.
Thanks!

OG was spot on though as well as final volume.
I'm very new at this but I think when you boil longer than the recipe calls for you should stick to the hops schedule. I.e. not put any hops in until you had 60 minutes left in the boil and continued from there. That assures that the hops boil for the same amount as called for by the recipe. Otherwise, the hops get "over extracted".

That was kinda my point, I didn't expect it to take that long to boil off. The worst part is it boiled over nearly a half a dozen times.

Just bottled this, got 51 bottles total. Smelled ficking delicious. I followed the recipe, except I used 8.5lbs 2 row, and I dry hopped with 1oz cascade then crash cooled. I can't wait to taste in 3 weeks. It will be bottle conditioning while Im in dominican republic

3 weeks in the fridge and this beer is great. I really appreciate how easy it is on the palate, especially on a hot day like today.

Pulled a pint of the wonderful brew tonight. Very good. It's about 5 weeks old now.
