I was thinking of using a first wort addition with my English Best Bitter this week. Never tried this before.
Original schedule (46l batch):
100-110g bittering (25-27 IBU)
20-25g Finishing (split between a 15/20 and a flameout addition)
What I’ve read so far is that I should do aprox. 30% of my bittering hops at FW?
Would I even bother with my later additions if I did the FW addition?
Would my total bittering hops (including FW) stay roughly the same?
Would this give me a suitable profile for the style?
Anything else I would need to know?
Most of the hops are EK Goldings (4.7ish) with some Hallertau (5.5) mixed in at bittering just to make up the numbers.
