This chart from Jim is why I asked the question. I can't see how a hop can do much of anything at flameout or especially dry hopping if this is the real deal.
That being said, I know I do get contribution to the final product from hops added at flameout, and I have dry hopped as well. I guess I was just wondering what the intent is. Since most of these extracts are HME's, the hop additions are doing something but are not the prime mover. Recently I have started using this hop schedule with DME and LME starters and getting some really good results. So, that's what got me thinking about this.
It's lager in name only, as you noted your using ale yeast. As to late, well I'm brewing one next week to be ready for the Ft Benning Oktoberfest, Oct 22 & 23. Our local brew club gets a cabin out there so we all go by swap beers, have a couple.
