Well, I was mashing my Belgian Tripel and during mash I may have had several homebrews, maybe one too many.. I panicked and noticed my gravities of my runnings were lower than expected. I thought my efficiency was just horribly low (just my second all-grain batch)
However, I completely forgot to consider the fact that I was planning to add 2 lbs of invert sugar.
So I did some calculations and added 3 lbs of golden LME i had sitting around to my wort before boil (It was supposed to be all grain.. oops) to reach a reasonable OG.
I am about to add another .5 oz of bittering hops to offset the extra malt.
RDWHAHB for sure.. I imagine it will still be delicious, don't believe i did anything that will ruin the beer, but not sure it will actually match the style as I had hoped.
Still planning to add 1 lb of invert sugar just to try to remain close to my original plan. I imagine my OG just before racking to primary will be higher than my planned recipe, but should still be at the high range for the style (1.085 ish)
So I guess the real question is, what effect will using the extra golden LME instead of invert sugar have on the final product?
Thanks guys, cheers!
