When you mention in the recipe that the Chinook and Cascade are at the 30 minute mark to be added, do you mean wait until the boil has been going for 30 minutes then add them? When exactly should the various hops be added? Is this really a 90 minute boil? I am really looking to try this recipe out, I just got back with al lthe supplies for it. Thanks in advance!

It is a 90 minute boil. Don't add any hops for the first hour. This recipe gets all its required bitternes from the final 30 minutes. With 30 minutes left start adding your hopps according to the schedule.

What's the point of boiling the wort for 60 min. prior to any hop additions? What would be different if you just boiled for 30min?

90 minutes is habit for me at this point. Reduces DMS for one, not that this beer is much at risk. I make all my recipes based on the efficiency of my setup so that I know the volume I will start with in my boil kettle, and I can expect to be at my gravity after 90 minutes. I expect that if you use this recipe and only boil for 30 minutes you're going to end up with a beer lacking malt charachter, off balance, and worst of all...low in alcohol content.

Just wondering, why would this recipe be any more expensive than the average IPA or other AG recipe? Might be brewing it this weekend. Would like to get away from Centennial for once in an IPA.

Thanks for the recipe, I am impressed. This was my first all-grain and everyone loves it.
Man you must pay alot for supplies !

Due to the lack of a 60 minute hop addition you need to supplement with many more late hop additions to get appropriate bitterness. I find the result to be a smooth bitterness with enhanced flavor and aroma...dry hop if so desired.

I'm getting kinda tired of Centennial as well. Bought too many pounds of it! So this recipe (or similar) is next up on my list.

Buying in oz. quantities of multiple hops makes things more expensive, though....

$96??? Are you joking?
Where in the world are you buying your hops and grains at? Do you get them shipped from Indonesia?
Just pay the shipping and order from brewbrothers.biz...this recipe would only cost you $60ish for a 10 gallon batch.

That message was from 2008. I wasn't brewing yet at that point, but I understand there was a hop shortage that year and much higher hop prices as a result.
