i am going to brew a pale ale tomorrow using a partial mash recipe. i need to use about three pounds of light DME. i want to do a late extract addition. i was thinking about mixing the DME with water in a separate pot and heating it almost to a boil, then adding the DME solution to my wort at the last ten minutes of boil. i figured it would mix easier, decrease in loss of boil time, and add back the half gallon or so of boil off. Any suggestions on this, is half gallon of water/3lbs DME a good ratio? my wort usually starts out at almost 4 gallons at beginning of boil. i am mashing almost 6 lbs of grain using a process similar to death brewers stovetop BIAB parial mash.
