Honestly, I had no reason for the 90min boil other than I have been researching a lot of DIPA. Staring most of the time at the DFH 90min clones. Glad you mentioned it, caused me to do research.

Your hop additions look purposeful, ill give it a try. Now more time researching how to make a good starter from this WLP001. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them. Especially if you have any other good suggestions to get all the work out of the yeast to finish.

Thanks for all the great information everyone.

As an all-grain brewer, 90 minute boils are good for high gravity beers. We can sparge with more water, collect more wort, and then boil longer to compensate. This improves our extract efficiency on beers where it would otherwise be poor. The only expense is the extra 30-35 minutes, and an extra half gallon of water.

For an extract brewer, there isn't much point to a 90 minute boil. I would definitely advocate adding most or all of your extract late in the boil to increase your hop utilization. But ya, a 90 minute boil isn't doing anything for you.
