Your efficiency will be less like that, but it seems like a fair trade off. When I started AG I only had a 7gal. post so I was limited to 4 gal. boils. My efficiency was in the low 60s, but I made some great beer.

I've done a good number of FWH only beers and calculating the bitterness as a 20 minute addition would have been flat out wrong.
at Darkside! Now thats too Funny!!
Yeh, I guess it would depend on how much is a little etc? I have to admit I don't know jack squat about hydrogen... how much can we get from a gallon of water anyway?
For those folks with a simple setup. Why is it that I always see a ss couple and then a hose barb in the inlet. Is there not a hose barb that can attache directly to the pump?
Maybe detecting HSA flavor depends on how fast the batch is consumed? If you drink it fast enough, it doesn't have time to develope the wet cardboard flavor perhaps?
Besides, while help may be nice, money would be better.
Does the quantity of hops added as FWH compare to what I would have added at 15 mins?
For example, today I'm making an ale and I intended to use 20 grams of Northern Brewer at 60, 1/2 oz of Cascade at 30, 1/4 oz of Cascade at 15 and 1/4 oz at flameout. The Cascade is leaf.
If I switched up the Cascade to 1/2 oz FWH, added the NB as planned and put in 1/4 oz at 15 and 1/4 at flameout, how would it differ? I really liked this last brew but want just a touch more hop presence.

Now thats a fun looking toy... lol.
Will that drop the temp to 60 degrees where most hydros are calibrated at or will it just stay at room temp?
Never tried a Chimay. Reason being, I gave up on Belgians so I figured why waste the 4 bucks. But, just to make you happy, I will try it. But, if I hate it as I suspect, I WILL be sending the bill to you. I'm not a huge fan of the hefes either. Sure did go over well here with the Idaho crowd though. Now it's time to show them what a mnas beer is.
If you use a growler, don't cap it too tight. Refrigeration will slow down the yeast, but it won't stop it. You don't want to be picking glass out of your fridge!Also wouldn't just covering it with foil work? I'm planning on doing this for my next string of brews.
