You can add sugar anytime before starting the chill-down process, but I'd say on balance it almost always makes more sense to add supplementary extract near the end so as not to muck around with hop utilization. And if you're adding hopped LME you probably don't want to boil off the more volatile characters of that, either...

Cheers!

Yup,hopped extract is def a flame out addition. I even add the balance of DME at the end or flame out. Def at flame out for my partial mash beers.

In my extract brews,I use half a 3lb bag of plain DME in the 2.5-3 gallon partial boil. The remaining DME & all the LME at flameout.
