It is here on HBT and/or other forums. Would post a link but sending from my phone and its a pain to search and post here.
Basically you make a hop tea just using water and hops. I used a french press as have others you will find. This makes it easy to deal w the hops trub.
Not timing critical I dont think. You might even get a bit more hops flavor if you wait till primary ferm is done because ferm activity can reduce some flavor compounds.
