I was wondering if anyone has ever heard of or does this, I was reading some info and came across someone who suggested adding 1/2 cup of LME to the water you use to steep your specialty grains in to get a better PH or something? Anyone ever heard of this or recommend it?
Also heard its a good idea with extracts to add the LME during the last 15 min of the boil along with your flavoring hops, is this also a better technique than adding it at the beginning of the boil and letting it be in there for the full 60 min?
I am doing a partial boil (about 3 gallons)
