Right now I'm brewing my first big beer in a while, and I will be "late wort hopping" I believe is the term. Basically 80% of my hops are going in in the last 20 min. I think usually its the last 15 but I wanted a few more ibus.

3 gal

5lb pale
5lb marris otter
.5lb 50l
.5lb carapils

1 oz cascade 120 min (yeah I know)
1 oz centennial 20 min
3 oz mix of 2oz amarillo and 1 oz simcoe over the last 15 min

1 oz amarillo dry hop
1 oz simcoe dry hop

I'm hoping for a hoppy one!!

I've heard of adding most (if not all) of the hops late referred to as "hops bursting".

It looks great! I love amarillo hops.
