I'm brewing right now. Doing a partial mash with 2 pounds of grain. Do I put my hops in at this stage and then boil as I normally would or do I take the hops out when I pull the grains out?

Thanks.

It's a stout, if it matters.

There is a lot of speculation on how to do a FWH with extract/pm. Id say yes, the magic to FWH is that the hops steep at about 150-165F during the lauter. SO, if you are steeping grains, that is a great temp. IMHO

That's the temp I was at. 'bout 155 or so.

My main question was do I continue to boil them as I would normally, for the full boil? It sounds like I do. :)

Thanks guys.

Yes, you always keep them in... they only contribute about as much bitterness as a 20 min addition. I use FWH on almost everything.
