I accidentally took brew-in-a-bag to a new level. I didn't realize that there was a brown paper bag in the crushed grains I got from the LHBS until I was stirring the mash after dough-in. I thought I got all of it out but I just finished the vorlauf and found myself still picking pieces out. What do you folks think? Ruined? Or new, dynamic flavor profile added?

i dont think a little bit of paper will harm it. you are going to have to incorporate the paper bag somehow into the name of your brew

I'll go for the "new, dynamic flavor profile added". I doubt it is ruined.

Let us know how it turns out !

Cheers !

We used to cook turkey in a brown paper bag. No problem.
