hops till flame out so instead of adding hops at 5 mins left in the boil which would be the 55 min mark I waited till 85 mins... Is thus gonna make the beer completely wrong?
Nope! Actually, I did the exact same thing this weekend. I had planned on a 60 minute boil but, the program I was using said that my pre boil volume was supposed to be 7 gallons. I know from my own experience, using my equipment, that this was too much so, I let it boil down an extra hour to help put my post boil gravity where it should have been.
