Yesterday I brewed a English IPA, my first and maybe last sober brew. When the boil was finished I added my flame out hop addition and went about getting an ice bath together. About 7 min later I looked behind me to see my flameout addition LME, all 6.6 lbs of it. In a frantic moment I restarted the boil, once it was boiling I turned it off and added the LME. Then I cooled and pitched S-04. Fermentation took off over night and temp is holding at 68 degrees. But, the beer is green. I mean there is rolling green beer in my fermenter. Did I mess up by starting the boil again? It was 15 degrees F out, so there was a temp drop, which is why I restarted the boil.
