Hey everyone, i just brewed another batch and when i got done i realized I screwed up my boil schedule. I did everything as planned and introduced my finishing hops at 5 minutes before the end of the boil, but the boil lasted 40 minutes instead of the normal 60 (so my bittering hops were boiled for 40 instead of 60 min). anyone know if this will affect the outcome of the beer?
Thanks again everyone! have a nice day!

I won't be as bitter but may have more hop flavour.
Why did you only do 40 minutes?
What was the recipe?
Was it AG or extract?
Have a beer on me.

yeah, your overall bitterness will be reduced by about 13%.

Don't worry, it won't suck. Like said above, you will just lose a little hop bitterness, and have a little more hop flavor and aroma due to it not getting boiled off as much. All you did was make the malt flavor a bit more pronounced, which will result in a little sweeter tasting brew, but probably not by much.

Tell us what your schedule actually was, amounts and times added, and we can let you know about how sweet or bitter it will be.

You won't notice the change in bittering, it's too small. The batch will be fine.
