Not paying attention as I should have I oversparged by a little over a gallon on the blueberry blonde I'm making. I was thinking about doing a 90 minute boil but I'm not sure how that will effect the flavor for this style. Or I can just make it a weak session beer. What do you guys think? I just started my boil.

I would boil longer and try to get your post boil volume correct. But then again depending on your recipe it might be a nice lighter session brew to leave it alone.

Thanks I decided to go with the longer boil so we'll see what happens.

I was kinda concerned about the maillard reaction on the flavor for the style. But who knows I may be onto something here.
