Hi, I'm making a St Arnold Xmas Clone and it's asking to add Liberty Hops with (0) minutes left in the boil. Am I reading that right ? If so, what does that do and how long after the boil should the hops sit ?

Yup, turn off the heat and add the hops. This addition adds hop AROMA to the brew. Let them sit for 5 mins. or so then chill as usual

Does it say "0 minutes left" or just "add at 0 minutes"
I would interpret the latter to mean at the "start" of the boil.

No, the brewing nomenclature would have the longest time as the start of the boil, most usually 60 minutes. That is the duration that the hops should be boiled. So if it says "0 minutes" you should not boil them, just add them once the brewpot is off the heat.

It's fine, and normal, to add hops at the end of the boil. If you boil hops for much longer than ten minutes, their aroma component evaporates (read: disappears), so if you want an aromatic beer, the way to get it is to add hops right at the end. Hops that are boiled from the start are there to impart bitterness to the beer.

The recipe is from the Best of BYO Magazine. Where it lists the hop schedule it simply says: 3oz Liberty hops (0 min)

I've actually seen recipes that call for a hop addition 5 minutes after flame-out. I don't know if that's for people using IC's opposed to CFC's, but it seemed intriguing.

Does anyone know of a temperature table that shows how the lupulin glands are effected by different temps?

The recipes I get from my LHBS are reversed I guess. The additions usually read something like: Add extract return to a boil and then add hops. At 45 minutes add flavoring hops and at 58 minutes add finishing hops 60 minutes remove from heat.

Ok. Most of the recipes you'll find on the 'net will be "60' meaning boil for 60 min, etc.
