Default Fwh?

I,m brewing Denny's Rye IPA right now (AG) and the hop schedule calls for a hop addition (FWH). What does that mean?

first wort hop.... meaning the one you put in right at 60 minutes usually.

Even before that. Once you've done your first runnings into the boil kettle from your mash tun you'll want to add the hops.

really??? I'd always heard that your first hop addition doesn't happen until you achieve a boil

Actually it's the hops you put in the kettle as you start collecting your wort when lautering.

First Wort Hopping is when you add the first addition at the beginning of the sparging process before the start of the boil.

funky, I'd never seen a recipe have anything before the 60 minute start point so I didn't realize that, live and learn

It's not a something done to often. We are all here to learn from each other

what's the benefit of doing a FWH instead of just adding at the 60 min boil??

It contributes a smoother perceived bitterness. Some have chosen to use FWH in place of the 60 minute addition and others do both.
