    Funny you should say that Dave I have known that it is possible to shorten the boil for quite a while especially with later hop additions but have always chickened out until today but I accidentally put my first hop addition in at 30 mins instead of 20 so shortened my boil from 60 to 50 to compensate. If as it is said it is not detrimental to this brew I may start to shorten all my brews even further to save time but may have to adjust the sparge as boil off will be less

    My brain wants to say something about boiling off DMS, but it isn't sure quite what.....

    Also I'm not sure if DMS is such s major problem these days anyway???

    Not missing anything no, but you'll need to reformulate your recipes based on the lower boil-off and therefore smaller increase in gravity between pre and post boil.

    Just catching up on this thread.
    Interesting comments about the bittering additions.

    I’ve based this around a GH single Hop ale from his book. He actually goes in with 54g of Amarillo at start of boil.

    I’ll load this into BF later and play around with it.

    Brewing tomorrow .

    Do you suffer with haze Clint when using Oats ? I’ve used them a couple of times and whilst improving head and body I get haze. Not that it matters , but you know .

    I use Porridge Oats instead of torrified wheat on nearly every brew now and have done for probably the last 20 brews and my beers are crystal clear and hold their head so I would not let it worry you

    So... I ended up replacing the cara with wheat malt and hops of:

    25g Am at 60
    25g Am at 15
    50g Cit at Flameout
    Then 50 of each for dry hopping.

    IBU at bottom end of a IPA .

    235160D2-2DDE-47F0-80E8-365E27E2A968.jpeg This is a pint poured tonight. It’s very decent , great head , lovely aroma, maybe a little over bitter so may ease that back a little next time.

    I’m going to do this one again, or a version of.
