This recipe is a 30 minute boil on purpose.

Forrest, just wanted to make sure that you still use a 30 min boil for All Grain?

Thanks

Once you extract the sugars from the grains you are boiling for the hops. White beer has no bittering hops (ie 60 minute hops). Only flavor and aroma hops (30 and 5 min hops). The beer would be too bitter for a white beer if you boiled for more than 30 minutes.

That is how this recipe is designed and advised by Pierre Celis.

Why mess with success?

Well, I'd never say mess with success- Pierre Celis is the godfather of wit.

I don't really see why you couldn't just add the hops at 30 min left to go and do a regular boil.

I'm not questioning the recipe at all, I just don't understand why not. seems like all it could do is drive off dms.

Is it necessary to secondary this? Wouldn't I strive for a little cloudiness?

you asking me?

In my personal brewing process I skip secondary for a longer stint on the yeast.

I've made this one a couple of times, but I did a 60 minute boil. I just added the flavoring/aroma hops at the appropriate times and it came out awesome.
