Recipe design noob here - can someone explain the 90 minute boil time on this?
In researching, I'm seeing a few advantages of a longer boil and none seem to apply to this beer except maybe the last one below.
- Higher gravity
- Hop utilization
- DMS boil off (for pilsners)
- Maillard reactions (i.e. melanoidin formation)
I'm planning on brewing this next week. I plan to brew 3.5 gal and add orange zest to 1 gallon. I hope it has some where close to the same chocolate level as Southern Tier's Choklat.
