Hey all, I just ordered a kit from Williams Brewing(the brewery kit with a 40 qt pot. German ale). I brewed 3 kits back in the late 80's. Back then it was a a pre hopped kit(1 can). 1 was good, 1 was ok and the last one, looking back I did not wait long enough and got that green apple taste. I can do a full 5 gal. boil with the pot. My question is about the hops. I have read that the hop utilization may be low if the instructions having you do a partial boil. If I add half the lme(no dme included/specialty grains) at the boil and then add the rest 10 mins. from flame out would that hurt or help out the hop utilization? Keep in mind it will be my 1st batch and I am not expecting an award winning beer. I just don't want to make crappy/ok beer.
