First Wort Hopping..?
I have read alot of people talking about FWH. And being fairly new to brewing, what is it exactly??

You add hops to the BK as you begin your sparge. The hops are in the wort during sparge (before the boil) and then remain throughout the boil. I've made a few IPA's that had FWH and they turned out great. I've never tried the same recipe without the FWH to see what the difference is. I guess the idea is that you get max bitterness from them.
Give it a try and see what you think.
