If I make a shehakol bracha and then discover that the correct bracha for the food I am eating is, say, mezonot, should I now make a new mezonot bracha on the remainder of the food? Or does the initial shehakol cover it?

    You should not recite a new b'racha (unless you remember toch k'dei dibbur); the initial shehakol covers it (based on the Mishna on B'rachos 40a; Shulchan Aruch OC 206:1). – Fred Jan 15 '13 at 7:07

    Thanks, Fred, that's what I thought. Why don't you put your comment into an answer? – Michael Sandler Jan 15 '13 at 7:12

    For a good 15 seconds I read the first word in the title as מסתכן – Double AA Jan 16 '13 at 7:23
  • @Fred I am also curious why that is not considered an answer... – andrewmh20 Jan 17 '13 at 1:28
  • @andrewmh20 and Michael Sandler - I didn't originally post it as an answer because I was in a hurry and would've preferred if someone posted a more thorough answer with every detail cited, but I've now posted it as an answer (mostly as is). – Fred Jan 17 '13 at 1:47

You should not recite a new blessing; the initial shehakol covers it (based on the Mishna on B'rachos 40a; Shulchan Aruch OC 206:1). If you recall immediately that you concluded the blessing incorrectly, you may correct the conclusion of the blessing toch k'dei dibbur (within approximately 2 seconds).
