I understand what you are saying Denny, but I think it would be easier for me to see or expect no noticeable changes if the time difference was a mere 30 minutes (standard 60 minutes vs 90 minutes.) I still think a 60 minute difference in boil time should produce significantly different beers from a scientific point of view, not conventional wisdom. An egg boiled for 12 minutes and an egg boiled for 36 minutes are both still hard boiled, but will differences be noted? Applying a boil to something for 30 minutes or 90 should yield different results whether cooking or brewing. I am not saying that DMS will be the difference, but hop utilization and isomerization should at least be different between them, no? The results showed slight differences in color, I simply think more differences would have been seen. I am glad that was not the case, and I may start some shorter boils on some of my brew days to see for myself. I think I'm just rambling at this point. I don't have the personal experience to back any of this up; it just seems logical that "x" minutes of boiling would be different than 3x "x" minutes. And now back to your regularly scheduled programming
I'm not sure boiling eggs and making beer equalte to each other....
