Posted in thread: How many BIABers use FWH & Hop-back? on 12-06-2016 at 11:56 PM
I BIAB, and have started always adding my 60 (or 90 depending on boil length) minute addition
as a FWH addition right after I pull the bag out of my kettle.I admit I know little about FWH,

Yep, blowoff tube until krausen starts to fall, then switch to air lock. This is assuming you

Citra is a great dry hop, cascade too. IPA's almost always need to be dry hopped. For 5 gallons
