Default adding malt extract in the last 15 minutes of the boil?

advantages/disadvantages to adding earlier?

I usually boil my wort chiller for the final 20 minutes, i'd hate to be trying to stir in 6lbs of malt around it.

phat tire ale recipe from northern brewer.

Boil about 1/3 for the full boil and the rest for the final 10 minutes.

Reason is mostly for color as LME caramelizes to a darker color.

I have found zero disadvantages I except for yours LOL

Benefits include lighter color, reduced caramelization of the extract, and better hop utilization. Add about half at the beginning of the boil, add the rest with about 15 minutes left, add your chiller to the boil, and then start the final 15 countdown.

The earlier you add the extract, the more caramel taste you get.

You don't need to boil your wort chiller for 20 minutes. 5 minutes is sufficient to sanitize it, or you can keep it in a bucket of sanitizer during the boil and drop it right in when you turn off the heat.

Late additions are the way to go. One word of caution: be careful doing a late addition if you are brewing a kit. The improved hop utilization can push you out of style. You will want to adjust your bittering hop addition down to 1/2 to 2/3 of what is called for if you are brewing a recipe that assumes a 60 minute extract boil. For instance, I did a Blonde ale PM with a late addition over the weekend. The kit I was doing called for 3/4oz of Perle for 60 which would have given me over 25 IBUs with a late addition. I dropped that down to 1/2oz and tossed the leftovers in at flameout for aroma instead which kept me at around 20 IBUs.

If you have BeerSmith or other brewing software you can enter the recipe into it and see the effect of a late addition. Under the extract ingredient there is a checkbox for a late addition, when you check it it recalculates your hop utilization and color based on the late addition.

I turn the heat off and remove the pot from the burner at 45 mins then add the remaining malt and steep for 15 mins.

I don't take it back to a boil.

+1 on not having to boil the chiller for 20 minutes...My last batch I had the chiller hose come off and by the time I got it back together I could only boil it for the last 5 minutes. Just be sure it is clean before going in.

Yes, they would, but I would hold off the LME for last since they are already hopped and too dark.

Not always. When I brewed extract, I usually used LME, and it was always un-hopped LME.
