I made that recipe about 6-8 months ago. I loved it! Didn't match exactly but was pretty damn close. I noticed it had a higher ABV than the original DFH 60 and mine turned out a little darker in color.

To the OP, I would recommend 1/2 the extract at 60 min and the other half close to the end of the boil.

Thanks for all the advice... I think I'll add half at the start an half at the end.. Or two thirds and one third depending on the size LME available...

Also I see in this recipe that you add the hops continuously...

How does that affect the finished beer?

The DFH people claim that it leads to a smoother hop bitterness. I'm not sure I completely buy it based on my understanding of the chemistry involved, but I do quite like the beer so I won't argue.

I think it's just a marketing gimmick.

When I made the 90 min clone, I divided the hops up into 45 cups and tossed in a cup every 2 minutes. I'm pretty sure the same thing could have been accomplished with far fewer hop additions, maybe as few as 4, at the beginning, middle, and end.

All I know is it was fun to brew. Theres no standing around thats for sure! I just held a big bowl of hops the whole time and tossed one in every few seconds. I even backed up and worked on my jump shot!

Also it gives you an excuse to make bad jokes like...

I continually hopped for 60 minutes and boy are my legs tired!
