90 Minute Boil

Hello Everyone,

If I perform a 90 minute boil with a hop schedule of one addition 60 minutes before flame out, should I wait 30 minutes before making the addition? I’m planning on brewing a Maibock and the recipe suggests a 90 minute boil (first time for me) to help reduce DMS.

Yes you want to wait until T minus 60 left in the boil for your 60 minute addition, so boil for 30 minutes then proceed as normal.

This!

LOL, that’s why it’s called a 60min addition. :wink:

cheers.

Fine. You know what? FINE!

Thanks, guys. Never underestimate the power of stating the obvious! Cheers. :wink:

Better yet, add at 90min and get more bitterness from those hops. You can use less that way, or have a little more bitterness for no extra charge. I think the difference is something like going from 25% to 28%, 3/25 is over 10% more alpha acids converted.

LOL, when I reply similarly to my wife, I usually get the same type of response. So, “sorry dear, my bad”.

:cheers:

Kind of a neat chart about boil time for hops.
