So got my 2nd extract kit (English Pale Ale). Came with 6 lbs of Gold LME and 1 lb Gold DME. Instructions say to boil only 3 lbs of the LME and the 1 lb of DME for the full 60 minutes. Says to add the second half of the LME at the 45 minute mark (so boil for only 15 minutes). Is there a reason for this? Would it hurt if I threw it all in at the beginning? I'm sure there may be another thread on this but I don't have time to look for one so I figured I could just get a quick response on this. Thanks!
