I’m very excited because I’ll be embarking on my first AG brew this week! I finally got a couple 5-gallon igloo coolers rigged up as a mash tun and HLT. Consequently, I’ve been reading up a lot on AG lately to make sure I’m prepared, and a couple sources have stated that a 90-minute boil is standard for all AG recipes. They didn’t say why a 90-minute boil is recommended; just that it is recommended. Is this true? The recipe I’ll be making is NB’s AG Cream Ale and only calls for a 60-minute hop addition. Should I still boil for 90 minutes? What is the benefit?
