Noob question ,Thanks for the help in advance.

When hopping Liquid malt extract using muslin sacks in 3 stages for example; Bittering for 60 mins, Then flavoring for 20 mins. and finally aroma for 5 mins  Which is the proper way to perform this from below A or B ?

A. Bring to a boil and drop bittering hops in for 60 min. wait 40 mins and then add flavoring hops.15 mins. after adding flavor hops add aroma hops for 5 mins.. remove all 3 muslin sacks . 60 minutes total boiling time

Or

B. Bring to a boil add bittering hops for 60 mins. and remove. And then add flavor hops for 20 mins and remove and then add aroma hops for 5 and then remove. A total of 1 hr. and 25 mins. ???

But boiling LME (Liquid Malt Extract) will probably darken your beer a bunch. It carmelizes. I use 1 lb of DME (Dry Malt Extract) in a gallon of water for my hop boils.

Definitely do NOT boil the already hopped malt extract, it will skunk,

3.3 lbs so I guess I should do 3 gallons...Or perhaps 1 lb I Gal. then add the other remaining 2.3 lbs of ume after the boil ..Which sounds better on an electric stove..Thanks guys
