Ok, so this is my first PM. It's an AHS Sweet Stout.

#1 Hit my mash temps too high. Around 170.

#2 I cannot find the Lactose or the Hops (only calls for 1 oz)

Is this beer even worth seeing to the end? Should I just dump it now?

Did you hop it at all?

If you hopped it, then of course you pitch yeast and see it through, you should never dump a beer unless you are sure it is infected...You never know what wonderful magic the yeast will go to the wort....I mean without lactose, then a stout is still a stout...just not a milk stout...SO what..

If you hopped it, and you pitched yeast you still made beer.

No hops. Cannot find them. I don't know if they didn't get shipped or if I just lost em.

I'm so stressed.

Is there anyway I can save the wort or should I just start over next week? It's probably not even worth it since my mash temps were so high.

Chill your wort and put it in a sanitized carboy with an airlock full of spirits. Hold on pitching the yeast until you make a hop tea and mix, then pitch the yeast. You'll make a killer Stout to have for winter.

How did you get the mash temp so high? Any mash calculator will get you very close.
I notice you call yourself Chef Chris but I thought a chef has all his ingredients and procedure before cooking?

haha, yeah, i'm no chef. it's a dumb name a friend gave me cause my last name is cook. I decided to just **** it and try again next weekend.

my mash temps were so high because I try to account for the addition of grains to lower the temp a good bit. However, that didn't happen. Live and learn. Thanks guys.

Tough luck about that buddy, better luck next week. I think they used to make beer without hops like way back in the day. Still drinkable I bet, may taste sweet or something I dunno.
