At the end of my brew day I was excited to use my new coil chiller. So excited in fact that I forgot my late LME addition, the bulk of the LME. I did not realize my mistake until the carboy was in the fermentation chamber and went to clean. My spur of the moment solution was to boil the remaining 5 lbs of LME in about half a gallon of water for 10 min. Let it cool to 70 in an ice bath and then added it to the carboy. Outside of a drop in ABV, which was already high for a saison, do you think that I should be okay? My thought is RDWHAHB, but who knows, others may have made the same boneheaded move.
