Default 60 or 90 Minute Boil?

OK, I do some recipes that require 60 and 90 minute boils and I just want to know what is the advantage of a 90 minute boil over 60? All things equal...what does the final product have to offer on the taste buds being a 90 minute boil over a 60?

Between the mash and sparge time, that extra 1/2 hour must be worth it or what? I have never tried boiling my own recipes for 90, but what can I expect?

Better hop utilization, for one. Also it breaks down some enzymes or protiens or something, good in lite lagers and such.

90 minute boils are not better or worse than 60 minute boils....If you see a 90 minute boil more than likely there's pilsner malt in the grainbill. 90 minute boils are usually only done with pilsner malt to drive off DMS precursors, which can lead to a cooked corn taste.

It a normal situation a 60 minute boil is all you really need to do.

It is matter of personal choice.. IMO
I"ve always boiled pilsner for 60 minutes and I didnt noticed significant DMS taste.

A pro brewer friend of mine encourages a 90 min boil.
