First Wort Hopping ?

(1/6) > >>

dzlater:
I brewed a batch that called for first wort hopping.
Do you remove the first wort hops or leave them in
for the whole boil ? ( I left them in)

tygo:
Yep, you leave them in for the entire boil.

Thirsty_Monk:
I am not a big fan of FWH.
I did about 6 brews with it and all of them had harsh bitterness (my term).
I tried it with Saaz (Zatec) and Hallertau. 

mikeypedersen:
I do it for my Pliny the Elder clone.  Seems to work OK there, granted that beer oozes hops, so it may only be good for beers designed to give you a Lupulin Threshold Shift.  ;)

Interesting...I've found exactly the opposite.
