I wouldn't worry too much about the difference between 60 and 90. Adding it earlier will probably cause a very slight darkening. Personally I wouldn't worry about it, but if you are, add it later.

Alabama homebrew legalization Bill HB 354 is set to be voted on by the Alabama House on Tuesday, April 3. Alabama residents are encouraged to email the House representatives prior to the vote and if possible, attend the session. We need to make sure the Representatives know how much this bill means to the state's homebrewers and that legalizing homebrewing does not pose a threat to the state.

Let's hope this year's vote goes better than last year!
Has anyone that uses a quick connect to attach a blowoff hose ever had any clogging problems? I was thinking this could be an issue so I was thinking of removing the poppet from the IN port and just attaching some silicone tubing to that with a pinch clamp.
So you are fermenting in cornies now?
I still don't understand how you'd get the yeast out of there for repitching if pushing it out doesn't work well. I would think dumping it from the opening of the keg would be risky.
Oxygenation for such a strong beer - how to do it?
The biggest problem that I saw with Denny's experiment was that it wasn't comparing the most appropriate use of decoction (undermodified malts) with an appropriate alternative to decoction (like adding some amount of melanoidin malt).
Instead of an airlock, I use a blowoff hose. It's just a length of tubing connected to the gas post of the keg with the other end in a jar of sanitizer.
