How much LME do you use in your souffles?

So, at the end of the boil and you add the last amounts of extract, do you continue to boil to the hot break and then remove and cool?

Once you add the remaining malt and get it boiling again you will get another hot break - and usually before the 15 mins are up, so you are good to go.

Just remember to boil 1-2 lbs of the lightest malt in 1.5 gals of water and add your hops. Add the rest of the malt after 45 mins.
I bottled a batch of HW earlier and am brewing a batch of HW right now!
