My method would be to move the 25 min. to FWH and leave the rest as they are.
Life begins at 60....1.060, that is! - "Homebrew All Stars" now shipping!

I just listened to Stan Hieronymous--according to recent research, he said, it looks like FWH yields more iso-alpha acids than 60min additions, but b/c they're added at a different pH they express differently and so are perceived differently, but in the end (according to the interview) there's apparently no reliable formula for determining IBUs or iso-alpha acids amounts.
Piratwolf: "I've heard that Belgian Blondes can be "panty droppers" but they're not particularly high IBU nor cheap."

jmendez29: Haha! I get it! :ban:
Wait. You're not talking about beer, right?
You're talking about beer. That could have been a whole lot more fun.
