What is an adequate wort boil time

<< < (2/5) > >>

tschmidlin:
There would be a difference to the yeast, but I am not sure it makes enough of a difference to worry about.  I wouldn't go above 1.040 though, I think it is just a waste of DME.  I make my starters with ~10% DME and 100% water, which should have SG around 1.037.  I should probably cut back to 8% DME.
