I was using the recommended first AG recipe--Ed Wort's Haus Pale Ale. How bad did I screw up! Well, first I forgot and used my tap water, which comes through a softener. Bad right! Then, (don't know how I screwed this up) but I dumped too much water in during my sparge and had to discard a bit of it and boil the whole thing a half hour longer to get it down to five gallons. So, I was worried. It tasted pretty acrid when I bottled it on Monday. I'm drinking one a bit early right now and it is really good for all that and the short conditioning time. If this is drinkable, then how bad do you have to do things to make it total crap?
