Subject: Kettle Hop Schedules
Date: 1992-02-28 14:42:27 GMT

I know that many brewers use a hop schedule for their kettle hops. For
example, they add 40% an hour before the end of boil, 40% 30 min. before
the end of the boil, and 20% at the end of the boil. I always add all
my kettle hops one hour before the end of the boil. Am I missing something?
What's the point of using such a schedule? I've never used the technique
and I'm skeptical about its effectiveness vs. simply adding 100% all at
once. Could those who use hop schedules please enlighten me?.

Thanks,
John
