What's the biggest impact of using more extract than a recipe calls for using, aside from taste? I made a Belgian white recipe and after getting it going and looking back through my notes found I had used six pounds of extract instead of the four pounds called for in the recipe. Oops

Higher alcohol content. What was your initial gravity reading?

Higher abv and more concentrated flavors. However, I hope you didn't underpitch the yeast.

I did something similar when i started brewing with my Mr Beer kits but instead I used less water to concentrate the brew. Came out with more enhanced flavor and higher abv.
