Recipe timing

When adding LME or DME during the boil of an extract kit, should I add a few minutes to the 60-minutes boil time to make up for the time it takes to get the 5 gallons back to a boil? Or will that mess up the timing for adding hops along the way?

Honestly, it really does not matter at all. Adjust, or don’t adjust. The beer will turn out the same either way.

This is true, as long as you don’t add your hops until it starts boiling again.
