Default Who else loves first wort hopping???

I have tried out the technique in a few of my brews and I've been getting amazing results. I love the smoother hop flavor it gives. Maybe its just in my head, but I don't know, it seems like first wort hopping adds a much more in depth flavor.

Who else has been messing with first wort hopping?

Care to divulge any favorite amounts/varieties you use?

I love me some FWH. I like magnum in lieu of a 60 min addition and adding a smaller amount of the same at around 45 in a lot of cases.

I like it from a laziness perspective. I always have a pils base due to availability, thus 90 minute boils. With FWH, I have lots if free time for mash tun cleaning and a meal before I need to pay attention for hop additions.

I haven't noticed or looked for a bittering or flavor difference, but that was never my motivation. But I due tend to FWH with a variety used in later additions or which complements them.
