Did you add all the Fuggles right at the end? That seems like a big addition. There was an earlier (incorrect?) version of the recipe that had a smaller addition of Fuggles at the end, which seemed a little more balanced.
Would it make sense to split the second addition into a 30 minute and flameout? Or 30 and flameout, or 15 and flameout? Might add some bitterness? Just thinking out loud.
