Here heres a quick question getting done with my wort. Getting rdy to chill and i found out i forgot to add my extra PME. How bad will this make my brew? Brewing a BB oktoberfest. Meaning i only added one PME of two canisters.

Can you add it now? Maybe add it to as small amount of water as possible, and bring it up to a boiling temperature, cool it, and then add it?

If you haven't started to chill, it isn't too late to add it. Just boil for 5-10 min after you add it. I would recommend adding it. Leaving out half your fermentables will make a big difference.

Adding malt extract late in the boil is a common practice.

Well brought it back to 200 dagrees added second PME. Let boil for 7 mins. Now cooling again with wort chiller. Guess we'll see how this BB kit turns out. Thanks for the quick input fellas. Im still a noob only me and my buddys second batch.

I think it'll turn out fine. If there were some late hop additions they may provide less aroma, but I think that's a better option than leaving out the extract.

Hope so. Took my OG it was 1.51 a bit over than what the kit called for. We'll see in about four weeks.
