I've thought about this, but it takes me forever to get the DME fully dissolved. It just clumps up and I have to stir it forever, and I don't really want to do this while the wort is hot and vulnerable.
Thanks for the advice. I might just start adding the extract at 15 minutes in real small amounts, although, I've been doing early extract additions before now and they've come out fine.
