Yes, I was supposed to put the flavoring hops in at 30 minutes and I put them in at 42 minutes. (thinking this may compensate for lost hops that came out with the grains at 42 minutes) Then I added the end hops at 2 minutes.
Noob question: what are IBU's and judging by the exclamation, im guessing 85 is high?
Thanks again everyone. The batch appears to have come out ok.
