    No boil ale, bittering hops

    Long story short, I won't be able to boil 5+ gal of water/wort with my stove for a while. So, I was wondering if I were to brew a raw ale and want to add some IBUs, what will be the best way? I've read some people will usually do first wort hopping or mash hopping, and while this is a viable...

    Boil Time and hop additions

    I'm having some difficulty in nailing down my boil times.
