Ha! Good work Drew!
Can the semi-talented pull off good beer with these cheap systems?
hmm, sounds like you need an audio geek.
Denny? know anyone that may help?
The goal with FHW is to steep the low AA hops (aka finishing hops) in the hot wort while the boil tun fillls with wort during the long lautering period. During this time the finishing hops release their volatile (and aromatic) oils and resins. Given the longer time steeping prior to the boil, the oils have more time to oxidize to more soluble compounds that survive the boil. If FWH is performed, at least 30% of the finishing hops addition should be added.
Because the low AA hops are used, the IBU's (total bitterness) of the beer do not substantially increase.
IBU-wise, FWH = a 20-minute addition.
I think you should have your own category Denny......Over 2000 posts?

If you can still find Oxiclean Free, that's even better--no perfumes or dyes.
Whatever else is in the Oxiclean Versatile that I use has no impact.
That's good to know. Maybe they consolidated into one powdered product and just quietly made it "free."
