Caught in Middle of a Mistaken Bracha

  1. If it is caught after the word Baruch Atta just stop and that's fine.
  2. If it is after Hashem say Lamdeni Chukecha. That isn't a bracha levatala but it isn't something to do initially.
  3. If it is after Melech Haolam some say that there's a solution to complete the pasuk in Divrei Hayamim. See Safek Brachot LeHakel
  4. If a bracha is made completely incorrectly one should recite Baruch Shem Kavod.

Quick Corrections: Toch Kedi Dibbur

  1. If one said the wrong text of the bracha it can be fixed within Toch Kedi Dibbur.
  2. If one said a correct bracha and finished one shouldn't fix or amend it within a Toch Kedi Dibbur and if one did so it is questionable if one's original bracha or one's emendation is effective.[1]
