Thanks. I'll post back with the results. I'm a fairly harsh judge of my beers I was hoping that because I had the five or so gallons of water that was camden treated when I topped off with tap water that some of the Camden would still have been there to get rid of the chloromine. My water tastes good out of the tap without a noticeable clorine taste so maybe if the planets align this beer won't taste like an electrical fire. First time I ever made this mistake so I'm pissed at myself, guarantee it won't happen again.

I have read about people using a titration of metabisulfate so I'm not sure if they are mislead or I am crazy. Just looking for an out here.

Yoop, do you think I will be able to taste the phenols after primary? If they are there I can dump this batch and brew another.

Time to go back to my checklist on brew day.
Thanks.

What about chlorine being the limiting reacting agent?

The water must be treated before the mash in order to avoid chlorophenols. It's ineffective after that. The good news is that since most of your water was treated, and maybe your sparge water stood long enough to off-gas if it was chlorine in the water (not chloramines, which won't boil off or dissipate).

If you do develop chlorophenols, you will be able to taste them after primary.

Update. Primary is over, I have tasted the beer and do not taste band aids or an electrical fire. I just taste green beer.

Of course, the phenols could show up at some point but I think I'm gonna go to the keg for dry hops.

I'll update when the beer Is finished . Thanks for all the help here.
