Extra water in bottles

I made me a batch of beer, folks, first one in a while, using about
double the amount of extract required. What if I just add some water
to each bottle, say a third, during the bottling stage? Any negative
effects, besides getting weaker, less alcoholic beer? Thanks in
advance, boys!

Try asking this in rec.crafts.brewing, where the focus actually is
homebrewing.  This newsgroup is practically dead, down to maybe a
couple of posters and the occasional lurker.

Consider that adding anything except freshly fermented wort (flat
beer) to a clean bottle is a potential source of infection.  If
you must dilute, dilute with sterile water, and dilute the whole
batch before bottling.  Or brew up a lower-gravity wort and use
that for dilution (but remember to ferment it out first to avoid
bottle bombs).
