    Huge first time mistake (added hops to the grain when steeping)

    Thanks for all of the advice. In case anyone is curious, the beer turned out well. I ended up dry hopping during secondary fermentation. I didn't get the pale ale I was looking for, but it is still good. It tastes a little more like a brown ale, I think. Anyway, I'm glad that I stuck with it...

    I guess nothing, unless, like me, you buy a kit hoping for delicious pale ale. My last Cobra is about 15 years in the past, and that's OK with me. Thanks for all the help folks. I feel a lot better about the potential of my beer. The other good news is, it's one mistake I'll never make again...

    I tried separating the hops from the grains, but they are too mixed in. They're not leaves. They are pellets. I'll post the recipe shortly. For now, I'll proceed with the instructions. Thanks for your help! I'm sure you can imagine how horrified I was/am that I may have ruined what is supposed...

    The steep was 30 minutes. I'm too new to know what AA% is, but if you're talking about bittering units, they are 13.

    Huge first time mistake (added hops to the grain when steeping)

    I searched the FAQ, but I couldn't find anyone who made such a basic mistake. My kit called to steep the grains in water before pouring that water into the boil, while straining the grains out. The problem is I accidentally put my hops in there too. So now that I'm boiling, I don't have hops to...
