I've had something of a hiatus from brewing, and as such I just realized that I made an error with my last two brews which are currently fermenting. I forgot to put the forrunnings - first pint or so - back into the MLT. How might these turn out?

if your saying you forot to recirculate and vorlauf your first runnings the only thing that probably happenined is you got more grain particles into your boil which can lead to astringency issues but only if ALOT of grain makes it into the boil.

Both OGs were on target. 1.056 and 1.054, respectively for fermenters 1 and 2.

They will turn out fine...you just got a bit more grain in there than if you have vourloffed, but eventually the bed adjusted itself and ran clear...
