    Was brewing a jester/cascade pale ale. Equipment necessitated doing 2 batches and amalgamation both in FV. First batch completed when I realised that I had used the full amounts of hops. Have mashed and boiled the 2nd part with minimal hops and added to FV.

    Will pitch the yeast and hope for the best, but the question is, Will the massive amount of hops in first batch overload it or will 2nd batch dilute it sufficiently?

    I think it will be fine. When it's all said and done, it's kind of hard to mess up beer.

    Well, it's in the FV and hopefully fermenting. We'll see in a couple of weeks

    +1 on that, mixing the two should balance it out I think, if not the worst is a very hoppy beer Mmmm

    Write up EXACTLY what you did.
    Mistakes often produce the best beer in the universe

    I think so as well.
    What I did to my first few batches should be considered a crime, yet they still turned out all right.
