boiling hops

Recommended Posts

When doing a hops schedule, do you boil the hops before adding LME or DME or is ok to boil the LME/DME during the hops schedule?

if your not using grains you need the Lme or Dme...boil your water turn off heat add your LME or dme then bring back to boil and start your hop schedule...

The brewmeisters can correct me if I'm wrong, but personally I put all HME's, LME's and DME's in first, then add the hops.  That way all the malts can absorbe the hops

you don't ever boil the Hme's.... If your doing a dry hop you add after everything is all mixed up but if your doing a hop boil you add the Hme after the hop boil...
