Help. I just realized that I always fill my brew pot to the target boil volume, and then add the extracts on top of that. But now I realize that adding several pounds of extract raises the volume. So when I compute hop utilization, should I use the volume before the LME, or the volume after the LME.
I have two brew pots on the stove, bringing them to a boil. And I want to make any necessary hop adjustments based on the response(s).
