Oh well, I added an extra half ounce of saaz @ 15 minutes. Schedule called for .5 ounce, but I added a whole ounce. Noticed later with about 5 minutes left in the boil. Too late to do anything, so my clone will be slightly different maybe. It was an AHS clone, partial mash. Everything was going good, mash temps good, no stuck sparges, everything going good then I goofed.

I am not too worried about it. Per Beersmith it is adding 4.4% more IBU's. It is in the bucket to ferment now so I am going to RWDAHB (Edworts Haus Pale Ale)

Cheers,

At 15 minutes, it is more for aroma than the IBUs. I wouldn't worry, it will still be good (maybe better)

+1, the beer will just might be a tad different...given enough time the difference will be negligible. You made a nice brew...maybe not a clone???

Thanks guys,
I am not to worried about it, it is what it is. Fermentation started in less than 12 hours so all is well at this point. Time to forget about it for a while and let the yeatsies do their job.
