Correct. I do not put if back on the burner. I just let it sit there.

In the meantime I sanitize everything I'll be needing after that...

I put mine back on the burner and let it return to a boil, however the clock keeps ticking. It usually only gets back to a boil for about 5-10mins of the remaining time.

Interesting. Why not bring it back to a boil, and then boil for the remaining 15 minutes?

You are going to darken the beer doing that.
Also a chance of scotching and caramelising.

The things you are trying to avoid.

You can also drive of the hop aroma.

I found that I could never get it back to a boil on my stove, and that affected the flavor from my late hop additions. I also learned that the extract doesn't need to be boiled, just pastuerized. So now I add the rest of the malt at flameout and let it steep for 10 - 15 minutes before I start cooling it.

It seems that there is no standard technique for this, so I will play around with it and see what works for me. Thanks for the tips.

Yup..you're basically just making sure that it's good and pasteurized. When I did late additions I just tossed the remaining DME in during the last 5 and returned the pot to the burner....this was the last time, no scortching or color issue: (slightly lighter in person w/o the flash)

Ooh. What's that brewt00l?

Whatever it is, it is light. I've never had an extract brew come out that light. Even a kolsch. Guess that means I'm doing late additions from now on.

One more question: what about specialty grains? Do you still do those before the boil? How does that affect the color?

Okay. That was really two questions...

Post 100!!!
