    Does it make a difference if I boil 10gms for 60mins or 20gms for 30 mins? Which is better?


    According to Beersmith it makes no difference.
    I plugged in 10 and 20 grams of Chinook at 12.4 AA for 60 and 30 mins respectively and the result was the same at 16 IBU for each addition

    Thanks Wobbly. Anyone else have any thoughts? :ugeek:


    I use this online calculator:

    boil and batch size = 23L (I usually boil in at least 2 Litres of water, which I then strain using muslin or coffee press)
    target OG = 1.000 (when boling in water and not in or with the wort itself)

    10 grams, 10% AA, for 60 minutes = 17.29 IBUs
    20 grams, 10% AA, for 30 minutes = 26.58 IBUs

    What I really want to know is; Does more hops provide a smoother bitterness than less hops (or vise-versa).
    I can do the calculations for IBU and the amounts are just an example.
