So, I need advice how to salvage my beer. I intended to make 5 gallon batch of IPA. I had ingredients for two batches of beer on hand and I accidentally added 3 extra pounds of dry malt extract to my wort. I added the following malts:
- 1 lb Extra Dry Dark Malt Extract
- 4 lbs Plain Amber dry Malt Extract
- 3 lbs Light dry Malt Extract (Added by mistake)
- White Labs American ale yeast blend
My recipe said to let it ferment for 2 weeks, rack, then let it ferment another 2 weeks. I don't have a hydrometer (I'm a Peace Corps volunteer and I had the ingredients shipped because brewing supplies aren't available in my post country). It has almost been a month now and there are still bubbles clearly rising to the surface of the carboy. What should I do to salvage the beer? My thoughts include giving it more time and diluting the beer with a gallon of water during priming. Advice is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
